This site serves as a companion to a recently completed 26-part documentary television series on the individuals and families that immigrated to Canada and helped build a nation. Each film was created by a different independent director, but the online features for each are presented in the same format. These features include a brief episode description, profiles of the director and the subject, several short essays on each subject's history in context, a sidebar, and related links. Whether or not users had the opportunity to view the series, these personal stories of individuals and families leaving their homes to carve out a place for themselves in Canada make compelling reading.
