Newspapers

For hundreds of years, newspapers were about the only way people could learn what was happening outside their own area. Meet the people and papers that helped shape Canada from its earliest days to 1920.

Treemendous!

Forts. Tipis. Maple syrup. Birch bark canoes. Log cabins. Wagons. (And yes, magazines.) Trees are a big part of the story of Canada.

Settling in Canada

When Europeans starting coming to North America to live, they changed everything. How did they affect the people who were already here? Where did the newcomers come from and where did they settle? And how did they live?

Seeking Safety

Everyone who lives in Canada has a different story about how they and their family ended up where they did. What’s yours?

Growing Up Healthy

Don’t want to freak you out, but you are super-lucky to have good, free care if you get sick or hurt yourself. Today, it’s almost impossible for us to understand now how dangerous it was to be a kid for most of Canada’s history.

Canada and the Second World War

From farms to factories to fighting, the Second World War touched Canadians in many ways.
