There is a large African-Canadian (perhaps not African but Carribean) community in Halifax that has been there for a while. I am not sure of their origins, whether they were originally African or from the Islands. But it would perhaps be a good place to focus your research. Also, didn't they cross the Great Lakes as one of the last steps? mg
