In the afternoon, you can learn more about the history of the Portuguese in Toronto by visiting our photo exhibit at the IC Savings Branch on Dundas St. West, just west of Ossington Ave., integrated in the 2015 Dundas Street West Fest.

Preserve, Share, Explore: the PCHP’s Five Year Plan

The PCHP has put together a strategic plan for the next five years outlining our various objectives and potential partnerships, divided by three large areas: Preserve (archival), Share (public history), Explore (academic). Our five year plan, which was created for fundraising purposes, can be found here.


Thank you Ethnography Lab

The PCHP sends a big thank you to the Ethnography Lab’s Prof. Joshua Barker, Matthew Medeiros, and their students for taking our history tour in such a cold day. Your donation is also much appreciated.
