Czech Immigration into Canada

The Czech immigration into Canada can be divided into four time periods: 1880-1914, 1919-39, 1945-89, and 1990-2008.

The entire pre-World War I immigration remained relatively small. In 1911 the Canadian census recorded only 1,800 Czechs with almost all in the western provinces of Canada.

After World War I, most new Czech immigrants found employment as factory workers, artisans or farm laborers, and were primarily interested in economic opportunities.

Between the two World Wars, most Czech immigrants settled in Montreal and Toronto. Montreal increased its Czech and Slovak population to 3,700 during the 1920s, and Toronto's Czech and Slovak population grew to about 2,500.

In 1948 thousands of Czechs fled their homeland, when the Communist state of Czechoslovakia was officially established. Over 10,000 Czechs immigrated to Canada between 1948 and 1952. Another estimated 21,000 Czechs and Slovaks entered Canada as refugees between 1968 and 1969.
