The CIHS website now includes two complete lists of all of Canada’s ministers responsible for citizenship and immigration matters from 1867 to today. They are published with permission from and in collaboration with Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.
CIHS Bulletin 105 explores various aspects of Canada’s immigration settlement story. It opens with an
overview of the Canadian government’s settlement program arrangements from the post-war program
into the 1970s. (We have included one ministerial press release from 1948.) This issue also looks at how
one CIHS member, then a manpower officer, perceived and delivered that program in Cambridge Ontario
in the late 1970s. CIHS members have contributed two book reviews. Both books explore the authors’
reflections on their settlement pathways in Canada: one from Sri Lanka; the other from northern India.
This issue also includes an overview and update about the Hearts of Freedom project and a report of
CIHS donations to the Canadian Museum of Immigration History. Finally, there are sadly three new
names in our in memoriam segment: Jean-Paul Delisle, Victor Majid and Dr. Robert J. Shalka.
