Share your immigration story
Have you ever reflected on the journeys you or your family have made? What were the decisions and paths taken that eventually led to calling Canada home? Immigration is so much more than the movement of people, it is also the telling and re-telling of our family stories.
S.U.C.C.E.S.S. invites settlers of all generations to contribute their stories to a growing collection of immigrant oral histories that will become a video resource for educators across Canada. Selection will be based on the contribution to a breadth of cultural diversity and the diversity of occupations reflected. If selected, you and/or your family will be interviewed on video, and your family's oral history will be preserved to national archival standards and made available for teachers and students.
Home is where our stories live and are remembered. We invite you to preserve your family's journey and contribute your story to this important archival resource.

In the spirit of Canada 150, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. is seeking to record stories of families and/or individuals who have migrated to British Columbia or are descendants of migrants. We hope to reveal the important contributions newcomers and immigrants have and continue to make by sharing these oral histories with all British Columbians.
OUR GOAL is to video-document and archive these stories, and aim to provide educators a rich resource of immigrant perspectives, across a breadth of professions, cultures and languages.. We hope to reveal the important contributions newcomers and immigrants have and continue to make by sharing these stories with all British Columbians.
