The Ontario Heritage Trust recognizes that “The Archival Research of Italian-Canadian Immigration and Culture Project identifies and preserves the cultural heritage of Italian-Canadian immigration in Ontario, and shares these stories at conferences and through an online archive. The students’ work is supported by Brock University, University College (University of Toronto) and the University of Guelph.
Italian-Canadian Narratives Showcase is an initiative born in 2019 under the guidance and support of ICAP (Italian-Canadian Archives Project), a national network dedicated to securing the Italian-Canadian contribution to Canada’s evolving narrative, past and present. ICNS displays Italian heritage projects across Canada. The material presented here comes from public and private archives, university students’ work, local Italian-Canadian clubs and associations. The projects showcase the history and the role of Italian migrants in Canada from the late 19th century to the present.
The University of Guelph provides an Open Access repository for the Italian-Canadian Narratives Showcase project.
