About Pier 21

Canada’s Immigration Museum

We celebrate and share the Canadian immigration experience by honouring the unique stories of immigration throughout history. We also pay tribute to 1.5 million immigrants, war brides, displaced people, evacuee children and Canadian military personnel who passed through Pier 21 between 1928 and 1971.

With a goal of telling the story of all immigration to Canada, Pier 21 includes the broader story of nation building and will soon showcase exhibits highlighting the early beginnings of Canada (including first contact) and immigration from 1867 to the present. We aim to be a national centre for celebrating Canada’s rich culture and diversity.

Pier 21 is one of the Seven Wonders of Canada!

It’s official. Over 1 million Canadians voted, 3 national judges deliberated and Pier 21 now ranks as one of our country’s greatest treasures.

"Pier 21 is the personification of the promise of what this country holds. It is a metaphor for Canadian diversity, the welcome point that our country has for all cultures," says Seven Wonders of Canada judge, Roberta Jamieson.

A National Museum of Immigration to be formed at Pier 21!

Prime Minister Stephen Harper at Pier 21 On June 25, 2009, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the Statement of Intentions to designate a National Museum of Immigration at Pier 21. A certificate was signed to mark the occasion of the announcement by the Government of Canada, that it has concluded an agreement in principle with the Pier 21 Society, the Pier 21 Foundation and the Halifax Port Authority to create a national museum of immigration at Pier 21.

“This announcement shows that we’ve made significant progress in our efforts to become designated a National Museum,” says Bob Moody, CEO of the Pier 21 Society. “Gaining this official designation status will be an historic event for Pier 21 and for Canada. We are excited about the opportunity to share Canada’s immigration story, both past and present as well as expand our presence coast to coast to coast. We are looking forward to the journey still ahead of us.”

National Museum status will enable Pier 21 to dramatically increase its community outreach programming, online presence, marketing reach and ability to deliver all content in at least two official languages.

Since it’s opening on July 1, 1999, Pier 21 has enjoyed a high degree of success and acclaim for celebrating Canada’s immigration history. Pier 21 is dedicated to preserving, celebrating and sharing Canada’s immigration stories, from the 1.5 million immigrants and Canadian military service personnel who passed through this gateway, to the broader story of nation building and the early beginnings of Canada.

“We are a country of immigrants.” says Mr. Moody. “Pier 21 continues to celebrate these evolving stories at a time when it is increasingly important for us to understand and celebrate our country’s history, fabric and future.”

A Sand County Almanac: With Other Essays on Conservation from Round River

Aldo Leopold 

From Amazon

Published in 1949, shortly after the author's death, A Sand County Almanac is a classic of nature writing, widely cited as one of the most influential nature books ever published. Writing from the vantage of his summer shack along the banks of the Wisconsin River, Leopold mixes essay, polemic, and memoir in his book's pages. In one famous episode, he writes of killing a female wolf early in his career as a forest ranger, coming upon his victim just as she was dying, "in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes.... I was young then, and full of trigger-itch; I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, no wolves would mean hunters' paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view." Leopold's road-to-Damascus change of view would find its fruit some years later in his so-called land ethic, in which he held that nothing that disturbs the balance of nature is right. Much of Almanac elaborates on this basic premise, as well as on Leopold's view that it is something of a human duty to preserve as much wild land as possible, as a kind of bank for the biological future of all species. Beautifully written, quiet, and elegant, Leopold's book deserves continued study and discussion today. --Gregory McNamee --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

These original essays on the natural environment by renowned conservationist Leopold (1887-1948) were first published posthumously in 1949. In this edition, more than 80 lush photographs shot by nature photographer Sewell on Leopold's former Wisconsin farm accompany the text. Following the seasons, Leopold, whose seminal work in the U.S. Forest Service and in books and magazines helped shape the conservation movement in this country, shared his perceptive and carefully observed portraits of nature month by month. In April, he watched the "sky dance" of the woodcock, who flew upward in a series of spirals. As he hunted partridges in October, his way was lit by "red lanterns," the blackberry leaves that shone in the sun. A November rumination details how the products of tree diseases provide wooded shelters for woodpeckers, hives for wild bees and food for chickadees. Included also is an appreciative essay on wild marshland and several pieces stressing the importance of protecting the natural environment. Leopold sadly observed, "there is yet no ethic dealing with man's relation to land and to the animals and plants which grow upon it." His hope that society would develop an "ecological conscience" by placing what should be preserved above what is economically expedient remains relevant today. These evocative essays about the farm Leopold loved will again be enjoyed by nature lovers and preservationists alike. Though the book has been continuously in print, this beautiful illustrated edition, with its introduction by nature writer Brower (The Starship and the Canoe) will attract fans and newcomers and will make a great gift book this holiday season.

Maker Shed

Meet Sugru, an air-curing rubber that's designed for gadget hacking. Its uses are almost unlimited. We've used it to reinforce computer cords, protect our phones, make gaming controllers more comfortable, and even fix a pair of boots.

    It's electrically insulating, so it's amazing for cable repairs

    It bonds to most hard plastics used to make gadgets

    It's flexible and grippy - great for putting feet on things

It's available in packs of 8 x 5-gram packs. Get multi-colored, black, or black & white

We sold sugru at Maker Faire San Mateo and due to the overwhelming response, we now have it online in the Maker Shed! For those that don’t know, sugru is an air curable rubber with millions of uses. It molds like Play-Dough, cures within 24 hours, sticks to nearly anything, and is abnormally tough. I used it to fix my aging MagSafe connector then became addicted. Next, I added some to my space pen (it kept sliding out of my pocket) and a guitar pick (for extended Rocksmith sessions). After that, I decided to embed a tiny NdFeB magnet into a blob and stick it to my iPhone cable. Then I took an identical blob / magnet and stuck it to the back of my dresser. Not only does the blob help me identify the correct way to plug in my phone in the dark, it also keeps the charger hidden behind the dresser until I need it. Dual use and spouse friendly! sugru is sold in packs containing 8 – 5 gram packets. It is available in all black, black and white, or multicolor for a more colorful approach.


        Sets in 30 minutes, cures in 24 hours.-   Bonds to aluminum, steel, ceramics, glass, wood, some fabrics, and plastics. -   Removable from most non-porous surfaces.

        Forms by hand. -  Cures at room temperature.

        Waterproof and dishwasher proof when cured.

        Temperature resistant from -58F to 356F

        UV resistant

        Electrically insulating

New in the Maker Shed: Rocket Glider Kit

Remember those balsa wood airplanes you used to play with as a kid? You’d build it, toss it in the air, and watch it as it would soar for several seconds before crashing landing in the grass. Well, this Rocket Glider Kit (available in the Maker Shed) isn’t your average balsa wood airplane. Originally designed by Jim Walker in the late 1930′s, this glider has wings that fold back allowing it to become more streamlined. This unique twist enables the glider to rocket 60 – 70 feet into the air using the included rubber band. At the peak of the climb the wings fold back out allowing the glider to soar over long distances. The excellent flight characteristics of the glider even attracted the US military. During WWII they were used as target drones for machine gun practice (which we don’t recommend.) This captivating kit appeals to nearly anyone because it’s a remake vintage technology and is fun for the whole family. Look for it in the Make: School’s Out! Summer Fun Guide and the forthcoming Make: Volume 31!

Science Rules:

Lack of Sleep Increases Stroke Risk

from USA Today

The 30% of working adults who routinely sleep less than six hours a night are four times more likely to suffer a stroke, says a new study. The findings are the first to link insufficient sleep to stroke; they're also the first to apply even to adults who keep off extra pounds and have no other risk factors for stroke, says Megan Ruiter, lead author of the report. It will be presented Monday at the 26th annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies in Boston.

"People know how important diet and exercise are in preventing strokes," says Ruiter, of the University of Alabama in Birmingham. "The public is less aware of the impact of insufficient amounts of sleep. Sleep is important--the body is stressed when it doesn't get the right amount."

The number of people who report eight or more hours of sleep a night has dropped from 38% in 2001 to 28%, says the National Sleep Foundation. A government study in May found 30% of working adults get six hours or less. Experts recommend seven to nine.

Turning Saltwater from Earth and Sea into Water Fit to Drink

from the New York Times (Registration Required)

SAN ANTONIO -- Drilling rigs in the midst of cow pastures are hardly a novelty for Texans. But on a warm May day at a site about 30 miles south of San Antonio, a rig was not trying to reach oil or fresh water, but rather something unconventional: a salty aquifer. After a plant is built and begins operating in 2016, the site will become one of the state's largest water desalination facilities.

"This is another step in what we're trying to do to diversify our water supply," said Anne Hayden, a spokeswoman for the San Antonio Water System.

More projects like San Antonio's could lace the Texas countryside as planners look to convert water from massive saline aquifers beneath the state's surface, as well as seawater from the Gulf of Mexico, into potable water. The continuing drought has made desalination a buzzword in water discussions around the state, amid the scramble for new water supplies to accommodate the rapid population and industry growth anticipated in Texas. But the technology remains energy-intensive and is already causing an increase in water rates in some communities.

Trail Head:

Algonquin Park Hiking

Eastern Pines Trail

Eastern Pines Trail near Pembroke, ON  

Beautiful trail in the Algonquin Park, fairly easy most of the way. Several loops emerge from it. One can go as far as to the Glacial Boulders or as close as the beautiful High Falls, where many waterfalls, pools and natural water salides can be enjoyed. The campsides on the shores of lake Stratton are well leveled and have fantastic views. Beware of copious amounts to mosquitoes and blackflies in May and June.


Take Highway 17 past Pembroke. 3.5km past Forest Lea Road, turn left (South) on County Road 26. Travel 300m down 26 and turn right into Barron Canyon Rd, a.k.a. County Road 28. Starting this point the road is gravel and/or broken pavement. 26km into Barron Canyon Road you'll find the Algonquin Park boundary and the Sand Lake Gate, where you must settle your registration and permits. Travel 19km from the gate down Barron Canyon road and turn left to Achray campground, which is about 5km from this interesection and is the location of the trailhead.        

Booth Rock Trail Algonquin Park

Booth Rock Trail Algonquin Park near Whitney, ON                

This trail travels to the top of a ridge overlooking Rock Lake. From the cliffs at the top there is an excellent view over the lake. The trail descends to the lake and follws an abandoned railway back to the starting point.


TakeHiway 60 21.5km West from the abandoned rail bed in downtown Whitney, ON to the Rock Lake Road. Then take the Rock Lake Road 8.3km south. Follow the road past the Rock lake campground to the parking lot at the very end of the road.  

Two Rivers Trail

Two Rivers Trail near Algonquin Park, ON      

A fairly easy going 2 km loop that includes an easy climb to a nice lookout (similar to the more popular Lookout Trail down the road, but not nearly as spectacular). Trail guides at the beginning of the trail that discuss the importance of change in the natural forests of Algonquin. A great hike that is easier for children than Lookout Trail (although my children aged 5 & 7 easily did both).


Parking is off of Highway 60 in Algonquin Provincial Park.
