|Here, the focus is on the movement of peoples into and within Canada. A site such as Grosse Île and the Irish Memorial in Quebec, for example, commemorates the importance of immigration to Canada, the tragic events experienced at this site by many Irish immigrants, and the role the site played as the main quarantine station for the port of Québec. Other examples include events such as the Yorkshire Immigration, commemorating the 1772-1776 arrival of settlers in the Chignecto area of New Brunswick, and people such as Thayendanega (Joseph Brant), the Mohawk leader and British ally who led the Loyalist Mohawks to Canada and Sir Clifford Sifton, Canada's Minister of the Interior, whose aggressive immigration campaign attracted thousands of immigrants to the Canadian Prairies.
