The Kids Book of Canadian Immigration

Deborah Hodge
John Mantha

Canada is a diverse land with a rich immigration history. Our roots begin with the Aboriginal peoples who have lived here since time immemorial and extend to the wide array of newcomers who have arrived over hundreds of years from almost every part of the globe. People from more than 200 cultures now call Canada home --- and each one has a fascinating story to tell. Many of their stories, past and present, and their amazing contributions to this country are told in these pages.

Featuring stories of ethnic groups, mini-profiles, maps, archival documents and first-person accounts, this richly illustrated title in the Kids Book of series is a celebration of multicultural Canada and a comprehensive look at our fascinating immigration history.
