Toronto Ward Museum

This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Toronto Ward Museum

The Ward Museum is working to establish Toronto’s  rst museum of migration to preserve and share the important stories of migrants in the city’s history. It is named after The Ward, the Toronto area where early immigrant communities  rst settled and is now a densely populated neighbourhood in downtown Toronto. This year, the Ward Museum will run a series of community-led events inviting tourists and Torontonians to learn about the people and stories of those included in, and left out of, the 1871 census (the first census after Confederation).

The Ward Museum is trusteed by Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI).
