Abstract

Agricultural colonization in the forest regions was continuing much longer in Canada than in the U.S. The Acadian colonization in the forest of New Brunswick has been intensive up to 1940, and has taken place in a few cases still around 1960, while numerous British settlers in N.B. had given up their farms already between 1870 and 1930. It was strongly influenced by an ideology which connected Acadian identity to a rural existence. Unlike the young colonization area in the Peace River region in Western Canada, much of the strenuously cleared land went back w forest after 1950.
