WHERE DO NEW CANADIANS COME FROM?
This activity complements the Chapter 4 Chapter Task (Student Book, p120) by providing students information about immigrants who come to live in Canadian cities. Data from Statistics Canada have been used to create charts that provide immigrant population by place of birth for 15 Canadian cities. Students are asked to use this information to write a newspaper article telling readers about Canadian immigration.

Students can reach these charts by clicking on the links.
