CURRENT AFRICAN MIGRATION TO CANADA

CURRENT AFRICAN MIGRATION TO CANADA

The vast continent of Africa and its complex array of peoples has not had a close relationship with Canada. Prior to 1960, black Africans comprised a very small, scattered and almost unknown group of newcomers to Canada, although Africans of European and Asian ancestry had a clearer presence. Until recently, little formal documentation existed on any of these groups.
