Take a walking tour of The Ward, one of Toronto’s first immigrant neighbourhoods. Learn about the challenges faced by these new Canadians — African American, Irish, Italian, Jewish and Chinese — as they struggled to make a life in their new home during the first half of the 20th century. The tour focuses on aspects of housing and social support and includes the sites of former businesses, social service agencies, boarding houses, and religious organizations.
Tour Guides: John Lorinc and Ellen Scheinberg, Editors of the The Ward: The Life and Loss of Toronto’s First Immigrant Neighbourhood (Coach House Books, 2015)
