Austrian Migration to Canada

Migrations have to be considered as essential, persistent, and significant factors of societal change. Motivations and causes for migrations (e.g. internal, international or transcontinental) – be it voluntary or forced, temporary, seasonal or permanent – are multifaceted and complex. The project “Austrian Migration to Canada” comprises various types of migrations such as mass migrations around 1900, forced migration of Jewish refugees, post-1945 economic migration processes of Jewish and non-Jewish Austrians as well as resettlements of Displaced Persons and refugees in the aftermath of WWII via Austria (that functioned as transit country in the post-WWII period).
