This is a personal and evocative series, celebrating the grit and character of unsung immigrants - - regular people - - who staked their families and futures on a second chance in Canada. The series draws on a rich archive of home movies, photographs, letters home, diaries and oral history. These are personal portraits celebrating the diversity of the first families who arrived during Canada's formative years of nation building. From the early French, Ukrainian, and Irish settlers to the more recent Chinese, Japanese and Sikh immigrants, this kaleidoscope of images and experiences is unparalleled in Canadian filmmaking. These are the stories of families as much as of the communities they founded.
