Nordics are people who come from Norway, Finland, Sweden, Iceland, and Denmark. Nordic immigrants immigrated to Canada for many different reasons. Some came for the adventure and promise of a better life, but many also came because of overpopulation in their home country. In Norway, only the oldest son inherited his father’s land, and the rest of the children had to find work elsewhere. Few jobs meant that many Norwegians settled in North America. The Canadian government was offering 160 acres (1/4 section) for a $10 fee, so many Nordics came to buy their own land.
