Borderlines Podcast – History Episode 1 – Order in Council PC 1911-1324 – The Law to Ban Black Migration to Canada

This episode is a historical deep dive on Order in Council PC 1911-1324, an Order in Council from 1911 which stated that for a period of one year black people would not be permitted to immigrate in Canada because the Canadian government deemed them unsuitable to Canada’s climate. I am re-uploading the episode to fix some audio issues and also to add more context on areas that people had questions about.

The episode explores Order in Council PC 1911-1324, scientific racism, homesteading, Wilfred Laurier’s term as Prime Minister, the 1911 Canadian election, the situation in Oklahoma that caused black people to migrate to Canada and more.
