Canada: Day 1
December 17 - March 25

Explore first steps, First Impressions and First Experiences as a Newcomer to Canada.

The immigration experience is marked by firsts. The first day in a new country takes shape with an individual's first steps, first impressions and first experiences. Come explore immigrants' diverse personal Day 1 experiences, from Confederation to present day. Visit the bilingual exhibition Canada: Day 1 from December 17 to March 11 at the Lloydminster Cultural & Science Centre.

Newcomers' unique and shared experiences - across time and cultures - are highlighted in a thoughtful way through oral histories, archival images, original artworks, objects and your participation. Explore Day 1 through the themes of Transitions, Arrival, Encounters, Finding Your Way and Reflections. You will be transported back to your first day in Canada, or inspired to imagine yourself in a newcomer's shoes.

Your Canada: Day 1 experience goes beyond the exhibition. Through community outreach programs and learning opportunities in local schools, Canada: Day 1 is sure to spark ongoing conversations and further reflections on collective Canadian identity.

Canada: Day 1 is a travelling exhibition produced by the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 as a legacy project of our nation's 150th anniversary in 2017 and supported by RBC Foundation.

365 Days of Coffee
April 1 to 21

The consumption of coffee is part of a morning routine, the drive to work, interactions with others and how we spend money. We have all witnessed the line up at a coffee drive-thru. We have all seen the clutter of discarded cups on the street. Coffee impacts the world around us. 365 Days of Coffee explores our relationship to coffee and its impact on our culture and social environments. Monique Martin’s stunning prints and sculpture focus on the one of the few things we can live without.
Presented by the Organization of Saskatchewan Art Council’s Arts on the Move Program.
