Library and Archives Canada Launches Its Immigration Heritage Online Kits




If you do research in Canada, especially into that of immigrants, I have some good news for you!

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has released immigration heritage kits online. Ultimately 24 kits will be released.  The first three released relate to Chinese, Japanese and East Indian communities. Each kit includes lists of digital resources for a specific ethno-cultural group, allowing users to access photographs, works of art, texts, music and all other material available for that respective group.

Find out more by browsing the different immigration heritage kits on LAC’s website.



Editor’s Note: the linked webpage also provides access to relevant databases on the LAC site.
