Home Children

From 1869 until the 1930s, charitable societies removed children from British slums and orphanages and shipped them to Canada. They were housed in distribution centres until placed into service as domestics or farm hands. This plaque is located at the former St. George's Home, one of many such distribution centres in Ontario.
