Coming ashore on the Harbour Hopper is a fun-filled affair, but for the 1,000,000 + immigrants who passed through Pier 21, it was a much more serious matter. Carrying all their worldly possessions, they came to seek new fortunes, to escape hardship, and to follow their hearts. Pier 21 has since become a historic site offering visitors many exhibits, a multi-media theatre, and the opportunity to stand on the World War II deck where 494,000 Canadian men departed to protect the liberty and freedom we now enjoy (the same deck that would later receive more than 50,000 war brides).
