Gifts from Amin

Ugandan Asian Refugees in Canada

Shezan Muhammedi (Author)

The first major oral history project dedicated to the stories of Ugandan Asian refugees in Canada, Gifts from Amin explores the historical context of their 1972 expulsion from Uganda, the multiple motivations behind Canada’s decision to admit them, and their resilience over the past fifty years.

Please join us for a major event exploring the Ugandan Asian refugee resettlement in Canada! The event aims to engage the audience on reflections on this resettlement initiative and embark on a discussion on the future of immigration in the twenty-first century.

Following the event, light refreshments will be served and attendees will have an opportunity to explore archival material, purchase copies of Gifts from Amin by Shezan Muhammedi, and engage with the presenters.
