Between the 1860’s and the 1930’s, over 100,000 impoverished children from the British Isles were sent to Canada to work as indentured servants in the homes and farms of this country. These children, ranging in age from infancy to 16 years, were removed from their homes by philanthropic organizations and sent to Canada in hopes of securing a better future for them.
