Student site page and activity suggestions are...  Under Construction

LEARN is collecting historical documents that can be used to help students consider essential questions like:  How are economics affected by territory and politics?  Why is the Pacific Scandal historically significant?  Why do people come to Canada?

You will learn about  factors that contribute to migration, the measures taken by the Canadian government regarding immigration, the economic situation in the 1870s, the relationship between business and government, and how to explain the solution of the Canadian government to the economic situation.  

Note that only our document collection, under construction, is available at this point. Go to docs here ➦

Note that a related RECITUS Student Task is available for this period at
How could the Dominion of Canada pull out of the economic crisis of the 1870s? ➦
