Canada is distinguished from most other countries by the diversity of its population.Our unique cultural, ethnic and linguistic mosaic is reflected in the wide assortment of holdings at Library and Archives Canada associated with the different ethno-cultural groups.
The holdings include: immigration records and guides, identity files, muster rolls, travel guides, passenger lists, land grants and petitions, letters, diaries, journals, memoirs, newspapers (some ethnic titles), maps, art, photographs, music and film.

ethno-cultural community group, allowing you to access photographs, art,
texts, music, and any other material that is available and associated
