Toronto is a wealth of information for those seeking their Italian heritage. Since immigration to Canada occurred in the fifties there is a huge number of first generation Italians from every corner of Italy.I for example was born in Settefrati and came to Canada by boat in 1956.Canada had a sponsorship program which allowed for brother to sponser brother and other extended family members so just about everyone left Italy in droves.If anyone is looking for relatives check out the social club of your interest on the net in Toronto and you will find namesakes no matter where you are from.By the way GreaterToronto has the largest Italian population of any city outside of Italy.
