Pier 21, located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, is Canada’s national museum of immigration. It operated as an ocean liner terminal and immigration shed from 1928 to 1971. It became an immigration museum in 1999. Pier 21 is Canada’s last remaining ocean immigration shed. The facility is often compared to Ellis Island, although this term is also used to describe the immigration station at Grosse Isle, Quebec.
