Encyclopedia of Canada's Peoples (MHSO)

Description The Encyclopedia is a comprehensive reference work and research tool on different peoples/ethnic groups. The volume contains individual entries on, among others, the indigenous peoples, French, English, Blacks, Chinese, Jews, Ukrainians, and Vietnamese who live, or have lived, in Canada. Each entry covers the origins of the people/group, the process of migration, arrival and settlement, economic and community life, family and kinship patterns, language and culture, education, religion, politics, intergroup relations, and the dynamics of group maintenance. Entries are cross-referenced and include tables, graphs, and suggestions for further reading. A number of thematic essays are also included in the Encyclopedia to illuminate complex issues related to immigration, assimilation, multiculturalism, and Canadian culture and identity.
