The Gallery of the Portuguese Pioneers Museum was inaugurated in 2000 to honour Portuguese immigrants who arrived in Canada predominantly in 1953, 1954 and 1955. It is currently located at 960 St. Clair Ave West, West of Oakwood Ave in the city of Toronto, not far from where many of the immigrants arrived. These pioneers, who scattered all across the country, created a path for many future immigrants.
In the museum you will find stories and memorabilia which provide a snapshot into the lives of these early immigrants. The Gallery of the Portuguese Pioneers can be used by the community as a place of reflection and study. It also acts as an educational resource to show the impact the Portuguese community has had on Canada.
