Dates of existence



The Portguese Canadian History Project is a non-profit community outreach organization that aims to democratize and preserve the collective memory and historical knowledge of Portuguese immigrants and their descendants in Canada. Incorporated in 2008, Dr. Gilberto Fernandez and Dr. Susana Miranda founded the project, and were later joined by Dr. Raphael Costa and Dr. Emanuel da Silva.

In September 2009, PCHP partnered with the Clara Thomas Archives & Special Collections to facilitate the donation of archival records from individuals and organizations associated with Toronto's Portuguese community. In November 2015, the PCHP became associated with the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies at York University, which hired Gilberto Fernandes as a postdoctoral visitor.
