BOOK - Assisting Emigration to Upper Canada: The Petworth Project 1832-1837
By: Wendy Cameron and Mary McDougall Maude

Assisting Emigration to Upper Canada examines the way new attitudes and policies towards the English poor in the 1830s affected the British government's approach to emigration and to new immigrants in British colonies. Using a rich collection of contemporary sources, Wendy Cameron and Mary McDougall Maude focus on one group of English immigrants sent to Upper Canada from Sussex and other southern counties with the aid of parishes and landlords. Following the work of the Petworth Emigration Committee over six years, they trace the emigrants sent by the Committee from their place of origin to their first settlement in Upper Canada. Their work demonstrates that new rules for poor relief in England were reflected in Colonial Office instructions for receiving new immigrants in Upper Canada.
