We respectfully acknowledge that the South Asian Canadian Digital Archive at the South Asian Studies Institute, University of the Fraser Valley is located on the traditional lands of the Stó:lō (people of the river), whose ancestors have lived here since time immemorial. We are grateful for the opportunity to live, work and learn together on this unceded traditional territory.
Navigate the digital archives and discover collections that are related to each other through the following themes.
For over 100 years, the contributions of South Asian Canadians have been an important but often overlooked part of the Canadian historical record and not given inclusive cultural significance. Glimpse moments in history through some of our most recently uploaded items.
Do you have access to materials and/or oral histories of significance you could contribute to our digital archives? By understanding who we are, where we’ve come from and our role in society, we can weave our own story and help build a more inclusive society. Will you help us?
