Pacific Canada Heritage Centre - Museum of Migration


The Pacific Canada Heritage Centre – Museum of Migration (PCHC – MoM) Society is a non-profit society incorporated to build a wider and improved understanding of Canada’s history and growth through intercultural explorations of historic and current trans-Pacific immigration.

Its mission is to establish a Museum of Migration at a site of historical significance for Canadians whose families first arrived in Canada through its western portals, and create a supporting national research network for an interdisciplinary and more inclusive interpretation of Canada’s history.

The PCHC- Museum of Migration will be a hub where Canadians can engage with each other to understand past and current relationship between immigrants and host communities, including their interaction with First Nations peoples, and where Canadians will be able to research their family history and share their stories.

Since 2012, it has functioned as a “museum without walls” and offered a range of activities from workshops, cultural walking tours, to oral history projects and exhibitions throughout Metro Vancouver and Toronto in partnership with its wide networks of collaborators.
