Eric Major addresses a subject little known to many, the Pier 21 in Halifax, gateway for European immigrants, pioneers in Canada. And following up on the immigration subject, Rosemary Baptista gives a historical overview of the beginning of the Portuguese presence in Nova Scotia.

Other subjects covered here, related to the region: The Atlantic Immigration Pilot immigration program; the literary work of Ligia Carvalho, a Brazilian writer who resides in Woodstock, New Brunswick.

For the ones who are visiting or living in Halifax and “missing the taste of Brazil”, visit the bakery of Elaine Sphair, a Brazilian from Curitiba who, with only two years of Canada, managed to realize her professional dream.
Flavia Zancope, a legal specialist, presents tips on how to deal with the Canadian bureaucracy by addressing the topic of “Representation Agreement”.
