A Canadian Immigration History Syllabus

This syllabus brings together key themes, readings, sources, and questions in the history of migration to, from, and within Canada, offering a resource to educators and students, and valuable historical context for contemporary debates. It is inspired by the example of the #ImmigrationSyllabus created by migration historians in the United States in 2017.

Please feel free to share, download, and print this syllabus, or otherwise incorporate it into your teaching and immigration history related work. Wherever possible we have tried to use and link to free, open-access readings and resources.
