Does anyone know anything about 'Home children'? I am aware of this site http://www.collectionscanada.ca/02/020110_e.html but wondered if anyone had anything to add?

Lyndons Mum had 3 rellies sent to Canada under this scheme after their mother died and I know she has done a little research into it. Just wondering how common it was.
