Orillia Museum of Art and History (Virtual): Lori Oschefski – Home Children Canada: Breaking the Silence
September 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Between 1869 and 1948, over 100,000 children were forcibly sent from the United Kingdom to Canada to work. Called “orphans,” only 12 per cent truly were. Many were mistreated, many never saw their siblings, parents or families again.
Join Lori Oschefski, President of Home Children Canada, to learn more about these children, what they endured and how they overcame.
