Canada's History Society is delighted to announce that we have collaborated with the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba to create and host the Treaties and the Treaty Relationship webinar series.
This webinar series shares information and promotes conversation about the historical and contemporary issues that relate to treaties. These presentations explore both the Canadian and First Nations perspectives of treaties.
Through the Treaties and the Treaty Relationship webinar series we are able bring the Treaty Relations Comission of Manitoba's Treaty Education Initiative into your homes and your classrooms. With your participation, we can increase the knowledge and understanding of the treaties and the treaty relationship among all Canadians.
The Treaties and the Treaty Relationship webinar series ran from October 2016 to April 2017.
