Transcript of Building Canada through Migration

Why did they come here? (reasons for their migration)
Why does anyone emigrate? Opportunities. After World War Two much of Italy was in ruins, for many professionals there were no jobs and the future looked miserable. Canada seemed like a good option; a nation not overwhelmed by war and more than willing to let them in.

What is immigration?
Who were the Italians?
The Italians were people were people from a country located in southern Europe: Italy.
Italian cuisine has developed through centuries of social and political changes, with roots as far back as the 4Th century BCE. The dishes are heavily influenced by other cultures including ancient Greek, ancient Roman, and Jewish.
Popular Dishes:
- Lasagna:
- Pasta:
- Pizza:
- Spaghetti:
- Panini:
Lasagna is a dish made by baking such pasta with layers of sauce and fillings such as cheese or meat.

Panini is the word for a sandwich made from bread is cut horizontally and filled with deli ingredients such as salami, ham, cheese, chicken, or other food, and served warm after having been toasted on a grill.
Pasta is made from an unleavened dough of a durum wheat flour mixed with water and formed into sheets or various shapes, then cooked and served in any number of dishes. It can be made with flour from other cereals or grains, and eggs may be used instead of water.
Spaghetti is made of semolina or flour and water. Italian dried spaghetti is made from wheat, but outside of Italy it may be made with other kinds of flour. Traditionally, most spaghetti was 50 cm (20 in) long, but shorter lengths gained in popularity during the later half of the 20Th century.
Pizza is an oven-baked, flat, round bread typically topped with a tomato sauce, cheese and various toppings.
The italians started coming to Canada after WWII, in the late 40's. They began to settle in New Found Land but later started moving more inland towards Ontario, Quebec and Manitoba. Italians kept migrating to Canada every year, sometimes in large and sometimes in small number to this day.
Historical Background
The first explorer to North America and to Canada was the John Cabot (Venetian Giovanni Cabot). Italian have been migrating to Canada ever since, but major migration began after World War II. Italian were also part of the construction of the CPR during the late 1800`s. In 1881, after all that migration only about 1490 Canadians claimed to be italian. Currently Italians and Italian descendants make up 1.45 million of Canada`s population. That is about 4.6 % of the canadian population.
Commercial and Business Contributions
Even though we may not realize it, it is true that many extremely famous brands and companies in North-America are Italian. I`m sure most of the following brands would still be available here without italian migration to Canada but that line of immigrants has made these two countries, very strong commercial partners.
And these are only some...
