Immigrant Tribute Project
Villa Charities proudly announces the Villa Charities Italian Canadian ImmigrantTribute project, honouring Italian Canadian immigrants and their families.
For more than 50 years, Villa Charities has been a leading provider of Italian culture and heritage, and with this new fundraising initiative the charitable organization will establish a nationally recognized destination and tribute for Italian heritage.
The Immigrant Tribute installation and sculpture will be a destination for people of Italian heritage to gather, commemorate, celebrate, and reflect on their immigrant heritage and collective achievements. When completed, the wall will feature upwards of 5,000 individual plaques with the names of family members and the year they immigrated from Italy to Canada.
