## Chapter 4

### INTRODUCTION

Each year many people from around the world choose Canada as their new home. These people emigrate from countries around the world to cities in each of our provinces.

You have been asked to write an article that can be published in the newspaper about new Canadians in a city near you. Your editor has asked you to tell the readers where new Canadians have come from and which cities they choose to live in. Your article should tell readers how many people come from each area of the world to live in Canada (e.g. Europe, Asia, etc.) as well as which cities have the most or least immigrants. Give some examples.

### THE PROCESS

1. Find one way to create your schedule for each of the activities (homework, chores, and other activities). Check to make sure that the totals are correct.

2. Choose one city from the Immigrant Population: Statistics Canada Data website for your article. For more of a challenge, choose 2 cities and compare them in your article.

3. Find out the total number of people who emigrated from Europe and the total number of people who emigrated from Asia to the city you have chosen.

4. Write 4 or 5 interesting pieces of information you have learned from the chart that you could include in your article. Use the Immigration Worksheet if you wish.

6. Choose a title for your article.
