Hundreds of Canadian communities have been — and are being — forced to move for a variety of reasons, from urban redevelopment, the creation of national parks and war to economic forces, government policies and major infrastructure projects. This website includes a small selection of such places to highlight their regional diversity and the range of reasons for their relocations.
Help us create a more definitive database of relocated communities by adding your relocation story to this website. Include a specific location and briefly summarize your story using the form below to have your place added to the map under the “Your stories” theme.
