History of Canadian Immigration

Researching immigration is more than looking at dates of arrival and
ship’s passenger lists.

There are reasons why our ancestors decided to settle in a new country. Looking into the economic and social history of their original countries may give us the answers to the question of why they decided to leave.

Canadian: Immigration Records looks at the population growth and settlement of the last two centuries, before Canada became a country.
