high five

Canada is a vast country covering more than 3.8 million square miles. Its population is just as diverse as its landscape. Here are five facts to get you started. 1. The Haida are just one of hundreds of First Nations people of Canada. The group lived on Haida Gwaii, an archipelago off the coast of British Columbia. They used the red cedar trees found in the area to create totem poles, dugout canoes, and other items. 2. Welcome to Canada. Many Europeans immigrants in the early twentieth century took their first steps onto Canadian soil after arriving at Pier 21 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Nearly a million people passed through this immigration facility between 1928 and 1971. 3. Between 1850 and 1860, as many as 20,000 African Americans moved to Canada. Canada’s black…

moose, not meese

To begin, let us clear up the age-old question, “What is the plural of moose?” It is not “mooses” or “meese”, but simply ”moose.” The word comes from an Algonquin (Native American) word that means “twig eater.” The moose is a national symbol of Canada. It is the largest member of the deer family. At 6 feet from feet to shoulders, some bulls (males) tower over all but the tallest professional basketball players. Moose have thick, brown fur that is hollow inside, keeping them warm. They have long faces, short tails, and humps on their shoulders. A moose’s front legs are longer than its back legs. Its large hooves act as snowshoes, allowing it to walk in the snow without sinking. A moose’s sharp hooves are also its first line of…

welcome home to canada

The SS Nieuw Amsterdam docked at Pier 21, a brand-new immigration facility in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on March 8, 1928. Fifty-one passengers disembarked, the first of nearly a million immigrants who would pass through Pier 21’s doors over the next four decades. Before Pier 21 was built, immigrants who landed at Halifax were received at Pier 2. Compared to its predecessor, Pier 21 was modern and spacious. Its facilities included immigration offices, cutting-edge hospital and quarantine areas, detention quarters, and jail cells. Freight was unloaded on the lower level, and passengers were received on the upper level. A large sign that read “WELCOME HOME TO CANADA” greeted newcomers as they arrived. New arrivals waited in a reception area for their turn to meet with immigration and customs officials, who checked their documents…

a dark chapter in history

Long before Europeans settled Canada, First Nations people lived throughout the region. From Inuit in the Arctic regions to Mi’kmaq of the Atlantic provinces, hundreds of different groups were the original inhabitants of the area. Unfortunately, many Europeans saw the native population as a problem to be solved. In the late 1800s, Canada’s neighbors to the south established residential schools for Native American children. Children were taken from their families and sent to live at these schools. In 1879, Canada’s Prime Minister asked politician Nicholas Flood Davin to prepare a report on U.S. residential schools. In his report, Davin praised these schools and said, “If anything is to be done with the Indian, we must catch him very young. The children must be kept constantly within the circle of civilized conditions.” As a…

the haida: fishermen and craftsmen

The Haida are one of Canada’s First Nations groups. They live on Haida Gwaii (the Queen Charlotte Islands), an archipelago off British Columbia’s northwestern coast. Haida society consists of matriarchal villages made up of one group, or several groups, of houses. Ruled by hereditary chiefs, they are divided into Eagle and Raven subgroups. Expert fishermen and sailors, they are equally famous for their craftwork and traditional ways of life. The abundance of red cedar trees on Haida Gwaii led to the carving of huge dugout canoes, large homes, and totem poles. Smaller items, such as boxes and dishes, were also produced from the endless supply of cedar. All the items, whether massive or tiny, were decorated with traditional Haida designs. The Haida were famous for their potlatches. Given by the Eagle groups for…
