- Question 2
- Serbians have only
been arriving in Canada since the Yugoslavian war of the early 1990s.
The first Serbians to immigrate to Canada came in the 1850s. They
settled in British Columbia in the areas of the Fraser River and Vancouver.
Most were young, single men who found work in mining and forestry.
More Serbs arrived in substantial numbers in the 1870s. By 1900 they
began to migrate to other provinces. Quite a number came from the
plains of Vojvodina and settled in the somewhat familiar prairies
of Saskatchewan. The Serbian community in Regina dates from that time.
