At the turn of the twentieth century, Winnipeg was the fastest-growing city in North America. But its days as a diverse and culturally rich metropolis did not end when the boom collapsed. Prairie Metropolis brings together some of the best new graduate research on the history of Winnipeg and makes a groundbreaking contribution to the history of the city between 1900 and the 1980s. The essays in this collection explore the development of social institutions such as the city's police force, juvenile court, health care institutions, volunteer organizations, and cultural centres. They offer critical analyses on ethnic, gender, and class inequality and conflict, while placing Winnipeg's experiences in national and international contexts.

Calgarys Grand Story is a history of the city as told through the story of the Grand Theatre & the Lougheed Building, two of Calgarys most prominent historic icons. Commissioned by Senator James Lougheed, & his wife, Belle Hardisty Lougheed, the Lougheed building opened to the public in February of 1912 to much fanfare & great anticipation. This was a definitive moment for Calgarians & would mark the beginning of a golden era in the citys history. With the addition of a state-of-the-art theatre on the ground floor beneath offices that would soon become Calgarys premier corporate address, this building would anchor the development of the downtown core well into the 1950s. By mixing business & cultural history, the author sketches a fascinating urban biography of Calgary from 1912 up to Albertas 100th birthday in 2005.

While much has been written about Canada’s modern settlement program and there is a growing body of research and analysis of the settlement and integration successes and challenges of recent years, there is virtually no literature that has addressed the history of settlement services since the beginning of immigration to Canada. Some survey histories of Canadian Immigration have touched on elements of settlement policy but no history of services to immigrants in Canada has been published heretofore. Responding to Immigrants’ Settlement Needs: The Canadian Experience addresses this gap in the historiography of Canadian Immigration. From the tentative steps taken by the pre-Confederation colonies to provide for the needs of arriving immigrants, often sick and destitute, through the provision of accommodation and free land to settlers of a century ago, to today’s multi-faceted settlement program, this book traces a fascinating history that provides an important context to today’s policies and practices. It also serves to remind us that those who preceded us did, indeed, care for immigrants and did much to make them feel welcome in Canada. The Canadian experience in integration, over the past two centuries, suggests many policy-related research themes for further exploration both in Canada and in other immigrant receiving countries.
