   schema:description "Canada's first Immigration Act (1869) included Belgium among the "preferred countries" from which immigrants should be sought, but unlike many other European countries, Belgium did not encourage its nationals to emigrate to relieve economic, demographic, and social crises. Belgian officials took a strong interest in their emigrants, monitoring the conditions of settlement. The result was a resourceful body of settlers adaptable to both Anglophone and Francophone communities and adept at promotion and raising of capital. In the 1880s, the first wave of immigration consisted mainly of farmers to southern Manitoba and miners to Vancouver Island. A second wave after 1896, facilitated by a direct steamship link to Antwerp, brought more miners, as well as orchard planters to the Okanagan, sugar beet farmers to Alberta, and dairymen to Manitoba. World War I was followed by a further wave of agriculturally oriented settlement, and World War II by a mainly urban and skill-oriented cohort."@en ;
