Its purpose was to acknowledge and to educate Canadians about the historical experiences of ethno-cultural communities affected by wartime discriminatory measures and immigration restrictions applied in Canada.
The CHRP has made available $13.5 million toward 68 community projects that promote a lasting awareness of the communities’ experiences.
