The Punjabi Canadian Legacy Project (PCLP) is an initiative of the South Asian Studies Institute at the University of the Fraser Valley in partnership with the Royal BC Museum. The goal of the PCLP is to preserve, share, and explore the Punjabi community’s contributions to British Columbian and Canadian history.
By bringing communities together to record family histories, the PCLP compiles and shares Punjabi historical and contemporary perspectives on immigration, employment, social organizations, inter-generational/intercultural understandings, family settlements, integration, political struggles, and experiences of racism and discriminatory legislation.
Director Satwinder Bains and Co-Director Kamal Arora will be joined by co-ordinators Sharanjit Sandhra and Ishpreet Singh Anand, who will discuss the details of the project and the importance of archiving migration histories in Canada through hosting a brownbag event at the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada.
