Topic for this meeting: British Home Children. Between 1869 and 1948, over 100,00 children were sent to Canada from Great Britain  as indentured farm labourers and domestic servants. Several settled as far west as Saskatchewan. Over 10% of all Canadians are thought to  be descendants of the British Home Children.
