Alberta's Frank Oliver & Canada's Immigration Policy

Oliver's Immigration Policy

Welcome back to Jamaican & Canadian History on The Janadian Blog!

 

Please remember to pay close attention to dates as they will be important to future posts. According to the Canadian Encyclopedia, on January 1st, 1911 ...

Alberta's Frank Oliver wanted tighter controls on immigration. He became the Liberal government's Minister of the Interior in 1905. Oliver was staunchly British, and his policies favoured nationality over occupation. By 1911, he was able to assert that his immigration policy was more "restrictive, exclusive and selective" than his predecessor's.
