The talk below sounds interesting, if only because I always think of Italians as emigrating to the U.S., but of course many instead went to Canada, not to mention Australia and Argentina.
Indeed, according to the 2001 (Canadian) census, Italians compose the third largest ethnic group in Montreal, and the fourth largest in Canada.
