Between September 6 and November 8, 1972, Canada resettled over 6000 Ugandan Asians expelled
from their country. To mark this fiftieth anniversary, CIHS presents:
- A commemorative edition of our Bulletin with contributions from Canadians directly involved in this immigration response;
- In this eighty-minute video, leading Ismailis discuss the expulsion from Uganda and offer new perspectives in looking back over fifty years.
- a link to a book by the officer-in-charge of the special immigration office set up in Kampala. Roger St. Vincent’s book, ‘Seven Crested Cranes’ is online;
- an essay by Michael Molloy on the evolution of Canadian immigration policy tied to the response to the expulsion;
- a chronology on the operation as well as the daily processing statistics toward the 6000+ visas issued; and
- a story about just one of the many situations that arose in the urgent resettlement of these Ugandan-Asians.
