Even though the Portuguese are relatively new to Canada, they have made major contributions to the cultural mosaic of the country. Containing many new essays, this second edition of The Portuguese in Canada updates the work that filled a gap in the scholarly literature of multiculturalism in Canada.

The contributors come from a variety of disciplines ? anthropology, geography, history, literature, linguistics, sociology, and urban planning ? and are from Portugal, Canada and the United States. Essays examine the history of the Portuguese diaspora, the Portuguese presence in Newfoundland and its fisheries, language and identity, urban experiences (especially in Montreal and Toronto), and history and literature. This second edition of The Portuguese in Canada conveys the multi-faceted contributions the Portuguese have made to Canada and considers possible future growth and development of Portuguese-Canadian culture and heritage.
