This community is vibrant, actively engaged, continuously growing and developing. It is vast and diverse. Here are resources and examples of the Hispanic-Latin American community in action.

What Did You Bring?

What Did You Bring? Is an inspiring collection of personal stories behind the little treasures hidden in the luggage of immigrants who chose Canada as their new home. Photographs, letters, toys, and objects of many kinds, loaded with sentimental value, all act as ethereal strands between lives left behind and a new dawn on Canadian soil. Lovingly organized and curated by Adriana Pazos and Jose Pelaez.
