Finnish Canadian Culture

Finnish Canadian Culture – An Educational Resource

dvdgraphicThis multimedia DVD is to be used in conjunction with the book, “A History of Finnish Businesses in the Thunder Bay Area” published by the Thunder Bay Finnish-Historical Society.

The Finnish settlers who came to the Thunder Bay area have left a lasting legacy that has contributed immensely to the cultural and economic growth of the region. History has shown that once the Finns started settling in the region, they opened their own businesses. Today, various businesses still have a distinctively Finnish character that continues to shape social and economic aspects of northwestern Ontario and Canada.

On this program, you will find a host of multimedia resources, including audio interviews, videos, teacher’s resource, written records, and photographs designed to both educate and entertain on the Finnish-Canadian community in our country’s history.
