Custodial history

The Uganda Collection

Scope and content

This collection consists of material that highlights the expulsion of South Asian people from Uganda in 1972, and the resettlement of Ugandan Asian refugees in Canada. The collection includes 3 scrapbooks, hundreds of clippings from national and international newspapers, and a memoir that documents the Canadian immigration team's experiences in Kampala during the expulsion

The collection also includes numerous oral history interviews from Ugandan Asian refugees who recall their experiences of the expulsion decree and their subsequent resettlement in Canada.

The initial collection was transferred to Archives and Research Collections through the efforts of the Canadian Immigration Historical Society, and continues to be built upon by members of the Ugandan Asian community.

Additional items in the collection include a handwritten log book that documents the arrival of Ugandan Asian refugees at the Longue-Pointe Canadian Armed Forces base reception centre, as well as personal documents and ephemera.
