The Tailor Project is committed to documenting and sharing the stories of the tailors who survived the Holocaust and were brought to Canada with their families between 1948 and 1949 through the Garment Workers Scheme. 

These stories illustrate how people who experienced unimaginable trauma rebuilt their lives and created new opportunities for their families. They also underscore the value of immigration and importance of employment for refugees - in the past and today. With your support, we can continue to preserve the stories of these survivors, develop new educational programs and spread awareness. 

We are writing a book for publish in 2020 that will bring together the stories of these tailors, and will be creating a full-length documentary that explores the Tailor Project. We are developing educational programs that will raise awareness about the Tailor Project and its invaluable lessons, including the value of immigration and employment for refugees. We will also be creating a travelling exhibition about the Tailor Project that will give exposure across Canada.
