Originally produced as a documentary in 2016.
"Most of them have come from the Democratic Republic of Congo and some have transited through refugee camps in Uganda and Tanzania. They arrived in Quebec in the early 2000s and settled in Sherbrooke, in the Eastern Townships region. Unable to find work there, many of these French-speaking families have since left the province to move out West. Over time, a migration corridor has been carved out between Sherbrooke and the town of Brooks, Alberta, where a pan-Canadian welcome network has been created to facilitate the integration of newcomers. From Sherbrooke to Brooks is the story of this corridor travelled by many French-speaking Africans in search of a better life." - NFB website.
