“Ontario and Quebec’s Irish Pioneers” by researcher and historian Dr. Lucille H. Campey, the follow up to 2016’s “Atlantic Canada’s Irish Immigrants: A Fish and Timber Story" and second book of her Irish in Canada series.

The compelling story of Canada’s Irish pioneers, revealing the enormous scope of their achievements.

Beginning in the eighteenth century, an increasing number of Irish people sought the better life that Ontario and Quebec offered. Set free from the stifling economic and social constraints that held them back in their homeland, they prospered. And yet, strangely enough, they continue to be mourned as victims. 
In this second book of the Irish in Canada series, Lucille Campey takes on the victim-ridden mythology of destitute Irish immigrants fleeing the famine of the 1840s. In fact, the Irish influx to Quebec and Ontario began a century earlier.

Comprehensive and extensive research has been distilled to produce an informative and lively account of this great immigration saga, whose roots date back to the time of the British Conquest of New France in 1763.

The book is a rethinking of the history of Irish immigration to early Canada. In it, Dr. Campey takes on the doom mongers who paint Irish immigrants to early Canada as destitute people fleeing famine in the 19th century. Instead Dr. Campey argues that Irish immigration began a century earlier and is a story of well-organized pioneers who flourished in their new country.
