abstract
Thousands of immigrants come from Europe to Canada offering strength and skills in exchange for hope and a new life. "The long night is ended, the morning draws nigh," sums up the feelings of those who are sped through immigration formalities on their way to a fresh existence. Though the language may be different, these new Canadians soon find things in Canada that remind them of Holland, Poland or Belgium. Some immigrants carry on with their old trades--sewing, farming, diamond cutting. Others, on huge projects such as Des Joachims, use their muscles unsparingly to help build their adopted homeland, while their love of culture and their skilled professions will make valuable contributions to Canada in the future.
