Komagata Maru Project

In 1914, “Komagata Maru” carried 376 South Asian would-be immigrants to Canada, but it was turned away from Vancouver. This reflected a larger move against Asian immigration at that time in both popular and official circles.

In honour of the centenary of this tragic event, UBC Asian Studies and its partners have produced a multi-faceted program in early May to commemorate and understand more fully the incident and its ongoing significance in Canada today. Please click here for more information.
