Disclaimer
"Halifax's Pier 21 was the "front door" to over a million immigrants, refugees, troops and wartime evacuees, as well as war brides and their children. A visit to this captivating place on the Halifax Waterfront reveals their story and one of how a Canadian nation was built with their arrival. " Heather Andrews, Travel Director
