The Prairie Immigration Experience
This website is a collection of nearly 15,000 digitized archival documents, including diaries, correspondence, photographs, and audio and video recordings from the holdings of the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections and the University of Saskatchewan Archives. These archival records detail the experiences of the hundreds of thousands of immigrants of varied nationalities and ethnicities who came to Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta in search of a better way of life.
These digitized items have been organized according to their relevant nationality or ethnic group and archival fonds. When you click on the title of a particular fonds you will be presented with a description of the digitized material from that fonds and a link to the digitized items.
