Social Studies

Migration Unit 

After the war, Britain was eager to open up the backwoods to farming. It planned to fill its colonies with people from England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland. Between 1815 and 1850, more than 800 000 immigrants came to ports of Halifax, Saint John, and Quebec City. They wanted to migrate because in Britain the population was growing rapidly, but jobs were scarce. Farmers were being forced of the land. Poverty and hunger were common. Ireland suffered a terrible famine, forcing many rural people to flee. Immigrants  traveled from Britain to Canada by ship. This caused 800,000 immigrants to come to Canada, resulting in large population growth


As a small group answer these questions on a large piece of paper
