Italy - Italian

According to Zenon Pohorecky who wrote Saskatchewan People A Brief Illustrated Guide to their Ethnocultures, there are four seperate Italian dialects spoken in Saskatchewan among those Italians who largely arrived between 1940-1960. In the early 1900s those Italians who arrived settled in Regina or proved up homesteads around Battleford, Prince, Albert, Moose Jaw, Saltcoats, Saskatoon, Humboldt, Kerrobert, or Assiniboia. Those who settled in the Moose Jaw area asked "paesani" or villagers from the Ludlow, Massachusetts district to emigrate north to Canada.1 2 Early Italian immigrants may have first migrated to Belgium, England, France or America before coming to Canada.

"During the Second World War, the Minister of Justice could detain anyone acting "in any manner prejudicial to the public safety or the safety of the state." Thus both enemy nationals, such as Germans, Italians and Japanese peoples. and Canadian citizens were subject to internment. The army and the Secretary of State shared administrative responsibility for internment camps in Canada during the war, and these camps operated in Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and New Brunswick. Citizens could also be interned for belonging to outlawed organizations such as the Communist Party, so some felt that internment was used as a weapon against labour leaders. This collection consists of subject files created and retained in the office of the Director of Internment Operations which relate to the internment in Canada of German and Italian prisoners of war and of Canadian residents whose loyalty was suspect during the Second World War. In addition to policy files, there are inspection reports and returns as well as files relating to welfare matters, complaints and intelligence. The series also contains pay documents, medical documents and an alphabetic index of prisoners of war and internees on microfilm (see reels T-7020 to T-7057). These constitute a finding aid to other internment records as they indicate the camps in which the prisoners were held. "
