2019 British Home Child Day

Discover a little know part of Canadian History.

Visit the special exhibit set up at the Aultsville Train Station by volunteers from the Ontario East British Home Child Family. Between 1869 and 1948, over 100,000 children from the British Isles were sent to Canada to work as contracted or indentured labourers in rural areas, in homes and on farms. These children are known as British Home Children and many came to Eastern Ontario.
