Welcome to LMAC
Welcome to the LMAC website. We are Canada‘s only museum-archive dedicated to preserving the history and legacy of Lithuanian Canadians.
OUR PEOPLE introduces you to the history and culture of the country of our heritage, Lithuania, and then focuses on our immigration story, which had a modest beginning in the 19th century, reached a zenith in the 20th and continues unfold today.
LMAC’s mission is to preserve the imprint of Lithuanians in Canada. Other sections of the site reveal various aspects of this memory institution and its digital and traditional offerings.

Baltic Diaspora at Home in Canada
July 29th, 2017
Lithuanian Canadian Days
Presentation of a collection of oral history interviews completed by members of the Baltic German, Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian communities. This exhibition draws out common threads of the lived experience of members of these communities who grew up in the Baltics, were forced to flee their homeland at the beginning of World War II, lived through the refugee experience, emigrated, and ultimately established new lives and identities in Canada.
This project was completed by the Baltic Canadian Imprints group, a collaborative of four organizations: the Canadian Baltic Immigrant Aid Society, Latvian National Federation in Canada – Canadian Latvian Archive and Museum, Lithuanian Museum-Archives of Canada and VEMU/Estonian Study Centre.
