We’ve been studying the key industries that built this province and for these industries to be successful they need workers!  Our focus today will be to learn more about the different groups of people that came to BC.  We already know of some groups who lived in the colonies of Vancouver Island and BC (First Nations, British, Americans, HBC employees), but who else came to populate the colonies and help build the province?

We’ve already learned about a key industry that helped build the province – gold.  But there were other key industries that helped build the province, including lumber, fishing, coal mining, and agriculture.

You’ll be visiting 4 stations today and looking at “newspapers” to learn more about each industry and its connection to building the province.
