Canadian First World War Internment Recognition Fund

In World War One, Canada had designated over 8,500 people as "enemy aliens'.

They were stripped of their meagre possessions, sentenced to hard labour building national parks Like Jasper and Banff. They were subjected to censorship, suffered horrible living conditions and were often hungry.

Because of where they were born.

Men, women and children in labour camps, building the Canadian National Parks system and roads.
