In this hour-long documentary produced by CBC - TV News journalists from across the country, take a look at today's immigrant experience and look back at the History of Pier 21. This documentary begins with remembrances, using photographs and archival footage, from people on whose lives Pier 21 had a lasting impact. For more than one million people, Pier 21, a warehouse in Halifax, was where their Canadian story began. Join host Hana Gartner in this remarkable tribute to the Canadian immigrant experience as we look back at the more than fifty years when Pier 21 opened its doors and a nation walked in. We are told about the many experiences of those who settled in other parts of Canada as they share their story. We also explore the new realities faced by recent newcomers.
