The first Armenian orphans who arrived in Canada after the Armenian Genocide

99 years ago, in July 1923, the first 46 Armenian Genocide Orphans arrived at Georgetown, Ontario.

In 1924, they were joined by a second group, most of whom came from the Middle East and Europe, after they had been orphaned during the Armenian genocide.

By the end of the project, a total of 110 came to Georgetown, Ontario, and eventually came to be called the Georgetown Boys, one of Canada’s first humanitarian missions.
