Thank you Kensington Market Historical Society!

The PCHP would like to thank the Kensington Market Historical Society for inviting us to give a public history lecture on “The Portuguese in Kensington Market” this past October 21. The event, co-sponsored by the Toronto Public Library, was held at the Lillian H. Smith Branch and it covered the broader context of Portuguese immigration to Canada and, more specifically, the Portuguese-Canadian social, economic, and political presence in Kensington dating back to the 1950s. The large and diverse audience at the event was a testament to the public interest in constructively bridging the gap between archives, historians, and community members. Our thanks to everyone in attendance, to the KMHS for this opportunity, and to Sylvia Lassam for coordinating things.
