Enticing Their Own

by Chris Kitzan, Library and Archives Canada

Clifford Sifton did not settle the Canadian West alone. Hidden in the shadow cast by Canada's Minister of the Interior and his massive national immigration campaign were thousands of other individuals who also played a part in further populating the region at the turn of the 20th century. Some were dreamers and schemers who, for various reasons, hoped to place large numbers of immigrants in the Prairies. These people included men like Galicia's Professor Oleskow (1830-1903), Hungary's Count Paul Otto d'Esterhazy (1830-1912) and Britain's Reverend Isaac Barr (1847-1937). Even more effective in populating the West were immigrants themselves who, through their letters and trips back home, convinced family and friends to emigrate to Canada.
