Taken from Chapter 4: Immigrants from all over the world Every culture under the sun For a long time, Canada closed its doors to people who did not have a European background. In recent years, however, it has welcomed immigrants from Asia, the Caribbean, South America, and Africa. Some were refugees, fleeing from hunger and war in their home countries. Others came for the opportunity to live in a wealthier land. The largest group of recent immigrants is from the Far East. Thousands of Chinese from Hong Kong have immigrated to Canada because their city will soon become part of communist China. Most settle in large cities such as Toronto and Vancouver.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6-These revised titles (1993) are a must for any Canadian school library. The entertaining texts are responsive to curriculum objectives or general interest reading. Each volume is packed with effectively organized information. Native, French, and English perspectives are included as are first-person accounts of what it is like to live in Canada. The titles have been updated and address current issues such as the challenges facing Western farmers and refugees, and note the creation of a "first self-governed native territory" of Nunavut. Numerous full-color photographs illustrate the books; however, only Land includes a map. In terms of scope and intended audience, these are excellent works.
