In World War One, Canada had designated over 8,500 people as "enemy aliens'.

They were stripped of their meagre possessions, sentenced to hard labour building national parks Like Jasper and Banff. They were subjected to censorship, suffered horrible living conditions and were often hungry.

Why were these people rounded up?

Because of where they were born.

Men, women and children in labour camps, building the Canadian National Parks system and roads.

Here are the first season of stories of Internment as told by Armistice Films in conjunction with the Canadian First World War Internment Recognition Fund:
