I Would like to Acknowledge the following websites/corporations:
Throughout half of the twentieth century, Italy made steady progress in eradicating the high level of literacy that had been inherited by the new state of unification. In 1951, the illiteracy rate stood under a solid 13 percent of the population over six years of age, though it was nearly twice this in the south. The road to integration, however, was far from smooth, and during the 1950's and the 1960's, people experienced conflict over educational matters. A second level of conflict arose by different concepts between the parents and school.
Italy's Migration to Canada
The history of italian migration dates back to hundreds of years ago; the late 1400's to be more specific. During this time period, Giovanni Caboto (also known as John
Cabot) made his journey to the coast of Newfoundland. Though, at this point in history, Newfoundland had not been officially named. Italian contact with migration to what is now Canada can be divided into four broad periods. The first had occurred in the colonial era, when individual italians (often of noble orgins) played a significant role in the increase and entrenchment (meaning, to place someone or something in a very strong position) of the european powers,
mainly England and France, in the northern part of the North american continent.
The italian Canadian population climbed up by more than 12% and half of the population is combined with another ethnic heritage or group, mostly in another European group or heritage.
John Cabots Contributions to Canada
In the year of 1497, John Cabot set off on a voyage to Asia. On his way back, (simular to Christopher Columbus), he came face to face with an island off the coast of North America. As a result, John Cabot (Giovanni
Cabotto) became the second european to discover North America.
In becoming the first european to land on these shores
since the time of Leik Erikson, Cabot opened up the
Grand Banks to a steady encroachment (to enter by
gradual stealth of the possesions or rights of another) of
european fishermen, which paved the way to eventual

Italian Canadians have altered society's taste in food, fashion, recreation, and architecture which helps create a more multicultural community. They have also made massive contributions to the arts. For
example Mario Bernardi of Kirkland lake, Ontario, was
appointed the first conducter of Ottawas' National Arts Centre
orchestra in 1968 and helped guide it to the international
stature. The first italian newspaper in Canada was published in
Montreal in the late 1900's. By 1914, several other
newspapers were founded from Toronto to Vancouver.
Currently, italian and chinese are the most
widespread non-official languages in Canada on television and radio broadcasting.
The 19th Century
In the Late 1900s, multiple
migrated to Canada,
Central Italy favors olive oil and cheese. But, each of the different geographical regions in Italy favors different ingredients or specific meals. For example, coastal regions are most popular for their choice of seafood. In Canada, we dine on many italian foods; such as: Pasta, Casserole, Lasagna, Pizza, etc. Italian cuisine is very popular in many of our dine in eateries and take-out services.
Fact - In Italy, all children are required to attend
school through the ages of six to sixteen.
