When did the Dutch immigrate to Canada?
The first wave of Dutch immigration [1892-1914] The first wave began in 1892, when a group of men moved to western Canada to get jobs as farm workers. The next year 103 people including families moved to Saskatchewan to start their lives in a new, different land.
Why did the Dutch immigrate to Canada?
The next large migration happened between 1920 and 1929. During this, there was lots of demand asking for work in the farm, factory, and construction.
The third and last big wave of Dutch immigration began in 1947, following the end of WW2.
In conclusion, the Dutch immigrated to Canada in 1892-1914.
There were many farm workers who did not earn enough money for a living in their home country. They lost their jobs because machines were doing their work. They were desperate. And Canada had lots of good reasons to move there. People from The Netherlands saw advertising and magic lantern shows that promised a good and happy life in the Canadian Prairies.
Also, land was free.
People were told that if they worked hard, they were expected to succeed and gain more money.
The Netherlands flag was originally orange, white and a lighter shade of blue.
Which is now a light shade of maroon with a darker shade of blue.
What does the flag mean?
The old flag [orange, white, sky blue]. The orange in the flag represents a Dutch prince, William of orange.
