“Our Immigrant Stories” is a collaborative art project celebrating the achievements – big and small – of those who have immigrated to this land, hosted by the Canadian Museum of Immigration and its 2021 Artist-in-Residence Aquil Virani.

Who are the immigrant heroes in your life? What have they contributed to Canada? How have they helped you personally? Amplify their story, through writing, photographs, or video. Breathe some positivity into pandemic life by celebrating someone special.

Participants across Canada are invited to digitally submit their stories to celebrate@ourimmigrantstories.ca – whether in writing, photographs, drawings or video. Share your story and watch as artist Aquil Virani integrates the public submissions into a large-scale collaborative artwork and process video. Once completed, you will be able to click on the final image to see a high-resolution version of the piece and relish in the details.
