Surrey

Program Description & Details

How did newcomers get to Surrey? What challenges did they face? Did everyone have the same experience? Students use artifacts, maps, and documents to answer these questions and uncover information about the Chinese Head Tax and other immigration experiences. Immigrants in turn-of-the-century Canada certainly faced challenges. Students experience the cultural traditions of Scottish and Chinese newcomers on the farm, and learn how the Head Tax and other practices affected immigrants to Surrey in the early 20th century. Three-week rental.
