Then and Now 

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)


Then and Now is a series of stories profiling refugees who have journeyed to Canada over the years, in search of safety, stability and a chance at a better life.


Starting from 1956, when Canada accepted its first major intake of refugees, the project uses archived images and family photos to tell the stories of refugees from Hungary, Vietnam, Uganda, Somalia, Colombia and beyond.
