He found employment at THe Columbus Chain in St Catherines. His son Clifford John Torode joined them in 1913. Mary Alice Dorey and the rest of their family (with the exception of Reginald Torode)left Southampton on 04/06/1914 aboard the SS Andania and arrived in Quebec City on 13/06/1914. They started their new life with just £50. The reunited family lived in Martindake, St Catherines. They lost a barn and livestock to a fire, and then purchased a property at 68 Dufferin Street where Alfred built a huge greenhouse. They began a floristry business called Dufferin Garden Florist. The first flowers were sold from the greenhouse before renting a store on St Paul Street and also in the local market. The business profited and provided the family with a stable income. The next generation of children married and spread far and wide across Canada and the USA. One of their descendents is John Torode who wa born in Texas, USA who established Torode Realty - a property management and marketing business that has offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, and Toronto.
