Farming families for New Brunswick

Farm Workers wanted in Canada:


For many years Scots had migrated to Canada in search of a new life. It has been often said that one of Scotland’s export was its people. Were your ancestor’s part of that great migration?

 The following advertisement appeared in the Southern Reporter newspaper dated 14th May 1931.


A limited number of agricultural families are now being selected for improved farms in settled districts in the province of New Brunswick, Canada. Farms, Stock, and Equipment provided. Repayment in 25 years. 300 families already successfully settled. Splendid opportunity for experienced married farm workers, who are industrious, thrifty and not afraid of hard work. Reduced passenger rates for adults. Free passage for children under eighteen years. For further particulars apply to Jas. L Malcolm, Dept., 6S, Canadian Government Office 107 Hope Street Glasgow
