[ Project Plans | Essential Questions | Knowledge Hunt | Glossary | Links ]

Immigrants and settlers from across Canada, the United States, Europe, and Asia came to Alberta seeking free land, religious and political freedom, and, most of all, a fresh start. These are the stories of aristocrats, hat-makers, photographers, bootleggers, philanthropists, wilderness explorers, squatters, and café owners who came from all around the world to become true Albertans. The narratives of these Mavericks will facilitate student understanding of how the diversity of immigrants has enriched Alberta's communities and heritage.
