About the museum

This is a digital guide to the travelling exhibition "City Builders: a History of Immigrant Construction Workers in Postwar Toronto." It is part of a public history project that also includes a website, an oral history video series, and a two-part documentary, all of which are freely available online. This project was produced in 2017-2018 by a team led by Dr. Gilberto Fernandes, hosted by the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies at York University, and funded by the Laborers' International Union of North America Local 183, with additional funds from the Mariano A. Elia Chair in Italian Canadian Studies.

    It was wonderful to see my Dad in the builders group photo for the CN Tower. I would love to find more pics during the construction, if possible. Thank you.
