Honouring Canada’s History Champions
History is a complicated story. It is filled with dynamic people and intricate plot lines — of failures and achievements, of tragedy and hope. And, of course, history is not just one story, it’s many stories.
Across the country, dedicated individuals and organizations are sharing these stories as a way to bring context and clarity to the past, to guide us in our understanding of the present, and to inspire us to envision a better future together.
Canada’s National History Society is proud to introduce the 2021 recipients of the Governor General’s History Awards – an annual celebration of those who make the past relevant, engaging, and accessible.
“The 2021 award recipients show tremendous leadership in researching and sharing Canadian history so we may better understand our world today,” said Janet Walker, President & CEO of Canada’s History Society. “Their work will undoubtedly make a lasting impact on their students, communities, and the Canadian public as a whole.”
The 2021 laureates will be celebrated at Rideau Hall this fall, alongside the 2022 awards recipients.
The Governor General’s History Awards are administered by Canada’s History Society and recognize excellence in five categories: Community Programming, Popular Media, Teaching, Museums (in partnership with the Canadian Museums Association), and Scholarly Research (in partnership with the Canadian Historical Association).
