Prairie Immigration
The Prairie Immigration Experience is a collaborative digitization initiative between the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections, the University of Saskatchewan Archives, and Oseredok, the Ukrainian Cultural and Educational Centre. The site features 15,000 digitized archival documents relating to the topic of immigration in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. These documents include diaries, correspondence, photographs, and audio and video recordings from several fonds within the holdings of these three archival institutions. The archival documents detail the experiences of immigrants of various nationalities and ethnicities, from their arrival in Canada, to the hardships they faced settling in a new country, to the lasting effects immigration has had on Canadian society and culture. Several documents also examine the development of Canada's immigration policy and its fluctuating levels of restrictions on the entry of immigrants into the country. The site also features an educational component featuring a historical narrative, games and activities for students and lesson plans for teachers in grade six.
