    An extraordinary exhibition „Poles in the Canadian Mosaic. 150 years of History” will be held from July 6 at the Hamilton Central Library. For the 150th anniversary of foundation of Canada, the Muzeum Emigracji w Gdyni will show the history of 150th years of Polish presence in Canada.

    The story about Poles in the territory of today's Canada begins after the collapse of the November Uprising, when an emigrant engineer Kazimierz Gzowski supervised the construction of the railway bridge over the Niagara River. The visitors will find out, among other things, how it is possible that in the province of Ontario still the Kashubian language can be heard, what neighbourly relations between Poles emigrating from Galicia and Ukrainians looked like, what Polish houses on the prairies were built of, or where the famous Blue Army soldiers were trained.

     

    The exposition will be available  for Canadians in Ontario in Hamilton Central Library between July 6th and July 29th. The exhibition is prepared in collaboration with the Embassy of Canada in Warsaw and under the honorary patronage of His Excellency Stephen de Boer, Ambassador of Canada to Poland.
