Canada, the Great White North, is the home to hundreds of thousands of immigrants, many of whom are Indian. This influx started with the movement of East Indian and Sikh troops along with the British regiments to claim and settle in North America. Today, more than 5% of the Canadian population is South Asian. Manju Kapur’s The Immigrant is the story of one such woman who gets entwined in the question of her identity and nationality.
