Irish Immigration to Canada (1815-1914) from Matt Henderson on Vimeo.

UNLV professor Cian MacMahon visited Winnipeg history teacher Matt Henderson‘s senior history class to talk about Irish immigration to Canada between the War of 1812 and the First World War. The 40’ talk may give some interesting background on today/tomorrow’s Social Class & Immigration section of our Confederation discussions, but also delves into the Rebellions of 1837. 

Matt’s class and blog are consistently great reads for Socials classes in Canada, and anywhere.  Hopefully we find our way toward engaging with his upcoming Canadian Oral History project.
