Description

The Lebanese in Prince Edward Island make up less than one percent of the population. Within the Canadian context that makes them a small fraction of a small fraction. But a group is not interesting or significant simply because of its numbers. By looking carefully at the small number of Lebanese who have come to the Island, we are able to learn some important things about them, about ourselves, and also about the universal themes of emigration and acculturation.
