In March, 1999, the long-awaited Encyclopedia of Canadas Peoples was published by the University of Toronto Press. This book documents and records the experiences of all of the different ethnocultural groups that have made Canada their home. The 1340-page publication is the most complete record of Canadas rich multicultural history. The Encyclopedia of Canadas Peoples helps to provide a greater appreciation and understanding of all the diverse threads that make up the fabric of our nation.
To our Ethnocultural Voices series, the Society added An Italian Region in Canada: The Case of Friuli-Venezia Giulia volume was published with the assistance of organizations in Udine and Trieste (Italy).
