Canada’s National History Society was honoured to present the 14th Canada’s History Forum and to bring together educators, Indigenous leaders, researchers, and community members for a conversation about truth and reconciliation. Featuring award-winning educators and researchers from across Canada, this event highlighted community-based projects that exemplify meaningful and tangible acts of reconciliation.
