Journalism professor Randy Boswell has edited a newly published collection of essays on Canada’s immigration history, produced by the Montreal-based Association for Canadian Studies in collaboration with Halifax’s Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21. Among the contributors to the latest edition of Canadian Issues/Thèmes Canadiens — titled “Our Immigration Saga: Canada@150 — are CMI historians Monica MacDonald and Steve Schwinghamer, Madeline Ziniak, chair of the Canadian Ethnic Media Association, ACS president Jack Jedwab, McGill University professor Morton Weinfeld, and Dora Nipp of the Multicultural History Society of Ontario.

“Canada, more than most countries, is a nation of newcomers,” Boswell writes in the volume’s introduction. “Multiculturalism, diversity, difference: although some strain to say these words with menacing tones, in Canada they are terms that ring with pride.”
