BOOK - Ignored but Not Forgotten, Canada's English Immigrants
By Lucille H. Campey
Published by Dundurn, Toronto, 2014 (Sept)

Softcover... 35.00 (C$)

Ignored but Not Forgotten is a compelling and moving account of one of Canada’s foremost immigrant groups: the story of the great migration of English people to Canada that peaked during the early twentieth century. Based on wide-ranging documentary and statistical sources from both countries, it sets out the various events that propelled this immigration saga, which begins in the seventeenth century with the influx of English people to Atlantic Canada, moves on a century later to Ontario and Quebec, and continues into the late nineteenth century with the arrival of the English in the golden West. The great stream of English people who came to the Prairies and British Columbia in search of land and job opportunities represents one of the most iconic periods of Canada's pioneering history.

Widely ignored in the past as an immigrant group, the English are now being given the attention they deserve. The author reveals their outstanding contribution to Canada’s settlement and subsequent development and challenges the assumption that English Canadians were a privileged elite. In fact, most came from humble backgrounds.

This is essential reading for genealogists and general readers wishing to appreciate why the English immigrated to Canada and the enormity of their achievements.
