Canadian Heirloom Allegiance Series

Canada Heirloom "Allegiance: The Ontario Story" traces Ontario's history from before the creation of Upper Canada to the present. It is part of Canada's Digital Collections, which showcases hundreds of Web sites celebrating Canada's history, geography, science, technology, and culture. These fascinating Web sites range from treasures of federal institutions, such as the National Library, the National Archives, and the Museum of Civilization, to the local histories and way of life of Canadian communities. Canada's Digital Collections also features a growing set of on-line educational resources, such as curriculum units, classroom activities, quizzes, and games.

Population of Canada

Statistics Canada provides numerical information about the population of Canada and its provinces. The Web site includes information about the general population, components of population growth, mobility and migration, origins and visible minorities, languages and immigrant population. The 2001 census is the most recent data included although some projections are made into 2026.

?_Geography Who Are Ontario's People?
 

Students need to follow the step-by-step instructions very carefully to arrive at the correct data page at Statistics Canada. This activity could be modified by requiring less information (e.g., just the 2001 data). If blackline masters of world maps are available, students could also shade in countries of origin using a different colour for different number values, e.g. under 100 000, between 200 000 and 400 000, etc.
