  1. 1. Coming to Western Canada Immigration after Confederation
  2. 2. <ul><li>In 1870, the postage stamp province of Manitoba had only 12 000 citizens. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of them lived in small settlements and farms along the province’s river system. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>There were no cities or towns yet. </li></ul><ul><li>Winnipeg was still a village and had only 100 residents. </li></ul><ul><li>This would all change over the next few decades. The Canadian government had big plans for the Prairies. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The Canadian government planned for the Prairies to become a major agricultural region (an area for farming). </li></ul><ul><li>For this to happen, hundreds of thousands of immigrants would have to be recruited from other countries. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>In1881, only 66 000 people lived in Manitoba. </li></ul><ul><li>By 1901, the population of Manitoba had grown to 255 000. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of the people who came to Manitoba came here to be farmers. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><ul><li>The Canadian government hoped that the new settlers would fill the land of western Canada. This would develop the region and strengthen Canada`s economy. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The government hoped that these new farmers would help Canada become a world leader in agriculture (farming). </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>The immigrants who moved to Canada came from all over the world. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of them came from Europe. </li></ul><ul><li>Many of the immigrants came from the Ukraine, in Eastern Europe. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><ul><li>In some European countries, like the Ukraine, many people were not allowed to own any land. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When these people found out that they could own large farms, called homesteads , in Western Canada, they decided to leave their own countries. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>The land only cost the immigrants a $10 fee. </li></ul><ul><li>For this small price, people could claim 65 hectares of land for themselves. </li></ul><ul><li>This was a lot of land for people from countries where they worked on farms that might have been less than 5 hectares. </li></ul>
  10. 10. The government played a large role in convincing these European people to come to Canada. More on this tomorrow...
