The British Home Children in Canada
Date: Tuesday, June 21, 2016
Time: 10 a.m. to noon
Between 1863 and 1949, over 100,000 children emigrated from the UK to Canada to become indentured farm labourers and domestics. Two of Canada's best known authors on these children known as "British Home Children" will come together in June to share this story and answer questions.
Author Lori Oschefski, CEO of the British Home Children Advocacy & Research Association and Beryl Young, author of Charlie: a Home Child’s Life in Canada, share the story of British Home Children followed by a Q&A.
The new 2016 BHCARA Memory Quilt will be shown at this event!
