Welcome to The Shamrock and the Maple Leaf, an exhibition of Irish-Canadian documentary heritage held by Library and Archives Canada. Here you will discover photographs, letters, books, music and other evidence of Ireland's vital influence on Canadian history and culture. The exhibition also recounts the complex and compelling experience of the Irish in Canada through the words of leading contemporary scholars in Irish-Canadian studies, including Elizabeth Grove-White, William J. Smyth, Peter M. Toner, Cecil Houston, K.J. James, David A. Wilson and Michele Holmgren.

The Shamrock and the Maple Leaf is a resource unparalleled in print or on the Web. The exhibition embodies a dynamic, ongoing collaboration between Library and Archives Canada and the National Archives of Ireland -- two institutions that are dedicated to sharing our unique documentary heritage with the world.
