About this collection

A collection of archival images dating from 1950 to 1975 celebrating the contributions of Italian women immigrants to Canadian history and culture. In 1948, Canada began accepting family-sponsored Italian immigrants. Between 1950 and 1975, over 100,000 Italian women came as sojourners and settlers to their new country. Hardworking and very family-oriented, these women contributed substantially to community building, economic growth and social stability.

 

This collection contains a selection of archival images from the period. Some items with text are in English, others are in Italian.

 

Contributed by Multicultural History Society of Ontario.
