OTTR helps tell stories using maps, government information, history books, archival collections, ephemera, images, online sources and grey literature. We cover neighbourhoods across the city, including NCC holdings in Ontario and Quebec. Materials date from pre-amalgamation to present.
This archival collection consists of a number of different materials including over 1000 newspaper clippings and a personal memoir that documents the experiences of the Canadian Immigration team sent to Kampala in 1972. The collection holds numerous oral histories from Ugandan Asian refugees who share their lived experiences of the expulsion and their subsequent resettlement in Canada.
