about

People from every single country in the world call Canada home. From the very first arrivals as long as 30,000 years ago—the ancestors of Canada’s Aboriginal peoples—right up until today, people have settled in this country to build a better life.

Making Canada Home chronicles the country’s major waves of immigration, from welcoming early European arrivals to becoming a modern-day safe haven for refugees. The book also acknowledges times when Canada has not been especially welcoming. It explores how each period of immigration has shaped the laws, values, and face of Canada on the way to today’s multicultural society.

This book is a rich and thorough source of informational text, packed with primary sources including compelling personal accounts, historic documents, memorabilia, and archival photographs, as well as maps, sidebars, a timeline, and a glossary. Publishing in anticipation of Canada’s sesquicentennial in 2017, Making Canada Home will be a valuable resource to help young Canadians understand their country’s history and identity, and feel proud to call Canada home.
