Riverdale’s Essential Pathways to Employment (EPE) program participants go on a virtual trip to the museum
On Wednesday January 6th, the women from Riverdale’s EPE Program were engaged in an exciting virtual tour of the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 in Halifax. The group experienced different digitized materials from the museum, and together they discussed the difficult history of immigration in Canada: from settler colonialism, to discriminatory immigration laws, to the racism that immigrants of colour continue to face today. This was an incredible opportunity for the women in our EPE program to connect with each other and share their experiences. While this pandemic has presented new challenges and has prevented the women in our program from gathering in person, we’re thrilled that it has also enabled our group to digitally access museums across the country, like the Canadian Museum of Immigration in Halifax, through virtual tools and platforms that help us to connect.
