Change in the Maritimes

Top of page

Suitable for the classroom (intermediate and high school), this film examines the changing economy of Canada's Atlantic provinces and the factors that contributed to the expansion of industry in the early to mid-1960s. The film focusses primarily on the choice confronting many inshore fishermen--whether to stay with the free but frugal life that their nets provide, or to move to the city.
