Canada’s History Archive, featuring The Beaver
Please note: The Beaver magazine was founded, and for decades, was published, during eras shaped by colonialism. Concepts such as racial, cultural, or gender equality were rarely, if ever, considered by the magazine or its contributors. In earlier issues, readers will find comments and terms now considered to be derogatory. Canada’s History Society cautions readers to explore the Archive using historical thinking concepts — analyzing not only the content, but asking questions of who shaped the content, and why.
