As we revist our own association's history, why not revisit your own!
Pier 21 is a National Historic Site which was the gateway to Canada for one million immigrants between 1928 and 1971. It also served as the departure point for 500,000 Canadian Military personnel during the Second World War. Today, Pier 21 hosts the Canadian Museum of Immigration Atlantic Canada's only national museum!
For many Canadians, Pier 21 was their introduction to a new country. They came seeking adventure, employment and greater opportunities for their children. Many newcomers were happy just to be off their ship after a long and harrowing crossing over the Atlantic Ocean. Nervous and excited at the same time, no matter how much they had heard about Canada, no one knew exactly what awaited them... only that it was a second chance, a new opportunity. For better or for worse, all immigrants remember the moment they stepped into the shed at Pier 21 and knew for certain that they were not in Europe anymore.
The "Historical" portion of the evening will allow you to follow in the footsteps of the 1.5 million immigrants and Canadian Military Service personnel who passed through Pier 21 between 1928 and 1971. In the Rudolph P. Bratty Exhibition Hall, exhibits will be open to provide you with the opportunity to discover our nation's rich multicultural history. Explore Canadian stories of immigration and nation building through interactive exhibits, multimedia presentations and activities.

Peggy's Cove Tour
Departs at 2:00pm (3.5 Hrs)
$32.00 + 15% HST (based on a minimum of 30 passengers)
*Transportation will be made available to and from the tour
Join your kilted guide, who will introduce you to the delights of Halifax as you travel from the commercial downtown area, through the residential districts before leaving town via the Northwest Arm. Travel along the Lighthouse Route on to Peggy's Cove, which has been an artists' and explorers' paradise for well over 150 years. This village is located right on the rugged Atlantic shoreline, standing on solid rock above the crashing surf. The coastline is famous for pirates, shipwrecks, rum-running and one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. Choose between a walking tour of the cove with your guide or free time to explore on your own. Either way, you will see the weatherworn fishing shacks, colourful bouys and lobster traps still used by local fishermen, and awe-inspiring rock formations that have been carved out by the glaciers of the last Ice Age. You will also view the famous sculpture created by local resident William deGarthe - a beautiful granite carving which depicts the life and people of the area.
Return to Halifax having experience why no visit to Nova Scotia is complete without a trip to Peggy's Cove.
