Opening Ceremony for Vietnamese Journey to Freedom Commemoration Project

On behalf of The Vietnamese Canadian Association we invite you to the virtual Opening Ceremony of the Journey to Freedom Park. This event marks the beginning of the construction of a park and monument that will commemorate the Vietnamese people who tragically lost their lives in their journey to freedom and thank Indigenous peoples, Calgarians and Canada for their compassion in welcoming Vietnamese refugees to settle and make a new life. The event will take place on April 30th. 2021 at 11 am – noon at the location where the park will be built, at the corner of 17th. Avenue and 26 Street SE. Calgary, Alberta.

In-person attendance is by invitation only. Live Streaming of the event will be available on Calgary Vietnamese Canada Association Facebook page at:
