Between July 1999 and June 2000, 173,210 immigrants arrived in Canada, including 6,196 Caribbean nationals. Most settled in Toronto, enhancing its burgeoning multiculturalism; but Evangeline's family chose Ottawa instead - a city known as the coldest posting a Jamaican diplomat could receive. Evangeline discovers more about Canada the hard way. Although from 1994 to 2001 the United Nations declared Canada the best country of abode, Evangeline confirms that there are at least two sides to this, as to every other story. Minority status and its unfamiliar problems, subtle pressures to conform to new molds, unemployment and family reunification hurdles dog the resettling experience. However, active faith and steadfast purpose bring triumph in each circumstance. Jamaica, never far from Evangeline's heart, becomes a target for prayer as well as a destination for family visits and "snowbird" escapes. As recipient of Jamaica's 1992 Governor General's Award for the parish of St. Andrew, Evangeline remains patriotic. She continues to support the community outreach projects of Christian Life Fellowship in Jamaica, and the work of the Jamaica House of Prayer.

About the Author:

M. Evangeline Anderson migrated from Jamaica to Canada in 1999 with her husband and two of their children. They live in multicultural Ottawa, having resumed their careers and education, and having overcome the hurdles facing immigrants in doing so. Changing Worlds chronicles their first two years, with humour, candour and their Christian faith.
