About this title

Synopsis:

Canada's Immigrants, Heroes and Countrymen (Volume II) reflects the new emerging trends towards pluralism in Canada. The book tells the story of Canada's people since its early history and is an account of how immigration policy has evolved over the last one hundred years. But in order to give the reader a sense of the forces of socio-political history that have caused the movement of people across the world, the book carries narratives on the political and economic conditions in Europe, South East Asia and Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, that drove people out of their countries to either seek refuge or change their economic lives in Canada. The focus of this new title, which builds on the first volume released in 2001, is people. It tells the stories of 50 new Canadians across Canada who have, as first generation immigrants, achieved great success, demonstrated heroic courage in the transition process and who continue to give Canada their heart and soul. The people profiled include politicians, musicians, novelists, doctors, activists, astronauts, broadcasters, lawyers, businessmen, academics and many more. This book is virtually about dreams and how to realize them.

About the Author:

Sam M. Bayat, B.Sc, L.L.B., is a Quebec licensed attorney with a background in international law and is specialized in Canada's immigration law. He is a registered lawyer with both the Quebec Bar and the Canadian Bar Association and was the former president of the Canadian Bar, International Section in Quebec. He has lectured in International law at Concordia University in Montreal and is the senior resident lawyer of the law firm Canadian Legal Services (CLS) in Dubai. Bayat is an immigrant too. He migrated to Canada in August 1974 from Iran with his parents. As the pace of immigration to Canada out of the Middle East stepped up, Bayat set up Canadian Legal Services in Dubai. CLS is also affiliated to the Canadian law group, Weigel Chan Bayat, with Canadian offices in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. The group specializes in corporate, commercial, investment affairs, intellectual property, arbitration and of course, immigration law. Bayat has authored four books on Canadian immigration. His last title: Canada After September 11 was released in 2003. Robin Arthur is editor of Touch BASE, a monthly news tabloid that is probably the region's most dedicated world affairs newspaper. Arthur is also a columnist of the Halifax Daily News. He came to Canada seven years ago after a long working tenure in Dubai where he was a senior business correspondent. He won the Pan Asia Journalism Award in 1995. Arthur, who has traveled to most parts of the world, has authored several books including "Can the Poor Inherit the Earth" which is an opinion on third world development paradigms. The book has been hailed by economists and UN organizations including UNESCO and UNDP. He has also written fiction. The Island of Habarra was released in April 2004.
