“The Portuguese are one of the most important ethnic groups within the rich and complex mosaic that is Canada. However, the number of academic studies dealing with this group is surprisingly limited. This book represents an attempt to redress this scholarly oversight, for with it the Portuguese presence in Canada has been now represented in its myriad historical and cultural aspects. By publishing this work, University of Toronto Press expands upon and reinforces the idea of Canada as a multicultural society, by recognizing and providing Luso-Canadians with a place of their own in the social and cultural history of this country.” – Dr. António Montenegro, Chefe de Gabinete do Secretário de Estado das Comunidades Portuguesas.
