A Black History Top Ten List!

Since the 1960s Canada experienced a wave of immigration from the Caribbean islands. According to a 1996 Statistics Canada survey, the top 10 countries from which these people emigrated were:

  1. Jamaica
  2. Trinidad and Tobago
  3. Haiti
  4. Barbados
  5. St. Vincent and the Grenadines
  6. Granada
  7. Dominican Republic
  8. Cuba
  9. St. Kitts and Nevis
  10. St. Lucia

The movement of people is reciprocated. Many Canadians choose to vacation in these hotspots during the winter.
