The union of the Canadas was succeeded by the concession of responsible government and the complete acknowledgment of the rights of the colonists to manage their provincial affairs without the constant interference of British officials.
It drove to Canada a large body of men and women, who remained faithful to the crown and empire and became founders of provinces which are now comprised in a Dominion extending for over three thousand miles to the north and east of the federal republic.
The war in Canada was now at an end, and in 1763 the treaty of Paris closed the interesting chapter of French dominion on the banks of the St. Lawrence and in the valleys of the Ohio and the Mississippi.

 Basdeo - INDIANS IN CANADA 1900-1914
Canada's policy towards India was considered highly irregular for how could Chinese and Japanese be allowed to enter the Dominion while Indian subjects of the British Empire could not.
The Indian experience in Canada in the period 1900 to 1914 was similar to that of Indians elsewhere in other British dominions and territories.
As was the case in South Africa and Australia, the entry of Indians in Canada was seen as a challenge to Anglo-Saxon cultural homogeneity of the society, a challenge to British Columbia's white racial destiny and a threat to the economic and social status quo.

 Ukrainians in Canada, 1900-1930
One reason for the scarcity of Ukrainian Catholic priests in Canada was that the coming of married Ukrainian Catholic diocesan clergy was opposed by the Latin rite Catholic hierarchy both in Canada and the United States.
As previously mentioned, the Ukrainians' first decade in Canada was without the benefit of their Catholic or Orthodox priests, yet they built their churches on the empty, windy, lonely prairies and held impromptu services in them, always waiting for their clergy to come.
By the time he arrived in Canada on December 6, the clergy of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in the Dominion consisted of five Basilian priests, seven diocesan, four Belgian-born Redemptorists and five bi-ritual French Canadian priests — a total of twenty-one, along with four small communities of Sister Servants.

 The Scottish Tradition in Canada
While most of the chapters tend to end their story of the Scot in Canada around 1900, the reason for this is not far to seek.
Canada did not seem to have been as hard hit by the Depression as were some areas of Scotland where up to 25% of the labouring population were, at the depth of the slump, out of work.
Moreover, even though they may have no relations in Canada, they soon find that they are involved with other Scots or Scottish Canadians who are very conscious of their Scottish background and heritage, and of what Scots have meant to the development of Canada and Canadian self-consciousness.

 Forging Our Legacy
It was as much a feature of ancient times, when the ancestors of Canada’s native peoples migrated from Asia by land via Beringia or by sea via the Japanese current, [note 1] as it is of the present day, when immigrants from around the world come to this country in the thousands.
Continental Europeans did not settle in Canada in significant numbers in the early years of Confederation, but by the time that the fledgling dominion was sending soldiers to South Africa to fight in the Boer War (1899–1902), they had begun to arrive in unprecedented numbers.
Canada’s annual rate of population growth (natural increase plus net migration) has declined steadily in recent decades, from 3 percent in the late 1950s to less than 1 percent in the late 1990s.

 Canada Geese
Approximately 5,000 Canada geese are believed to breed in Wisconsin, but the breeding territories are mainly in Canada along the western shore of James Bay and the southern edge of Hudson Bay.
In Wisconsin, Canada geese are generally seen during the spring and fall in lakes, rivers, grain fields, and large marshes and grassy fields.
Canada geese are easily recognized in flight by their loud-calling, V-shaped flocks, where families travel together, normally flying at a level of a few hundred feet, or even lower in bad weather.

 Extracts from 1900 Canadian Immigration Report
When it is borne in mind that the great majority consist of families numbering from six to eight, your lordship will see that but few of these so-called pauper families can emigrate to Canada without in the first case incurring an expenditure of from $300 to $400.
I think this effectively disposes of any reasonable contention that pauper emigration from Europe either has taken place, or is at all likely, so long as the care that is now being exercised forms a part of the policy of the department.
The transportation problem in respect to emigration from Canada to Europe has reached that point when, I respectfully submit to your lordship, action should be taken.

 The Komagata Maru Incident
The 1900 census in Canada indicated that there were over 2000 Indians, primarily Punjabis living in Canada.
Considering the distance from India to Canada by boat and the average income in India, these rules and laws were blatant discrimination.
Their instant reaction was that "Hindus would never be allowed to land in Canada." The Indians who had already settled in Canada had also started to prepare for the arrival of the Komagata Maru.

 Landmarks Of Canada
And now, as we begin our work, in this tercentennial year of Canada's foundation, we find our first opportunity in the proposed dedication of the greatest of all our landmarks, that world-famous one where form and spirit, heirloom and talisman, are blent, in complete perfection, on the fields of battle at Quebec.
But remember that our business depends on energy inherited and transformed ; that warriors, states-men and divines made Canada Canadian ; that all nations decay who fail in arms and art ; and that we are now particularly apt to mistake comfort for civilization.
But our Canada does need the exalting touch of every landmark that bears a living message, and that she can keep either in substance or in souvenir ; lest, seeking the whole mere world of riches, she lose her own soul.
