Canada History Week 2021

#HISTORYWEEK2021 Canada History Week provides all Canadians with the opportunity to learn more about people and events that have shaped the country we know today. Take a look at past themes to learn even more. • In 2014, Canada History Week had a different theme each day, including Discovering our National Museums, Discovering our Historic Sites, and more. • In 2015, the theme was Sport through History, which connected with the Year of Sport in Canada. • In 2016, the theme commemorated the 100th anniversary of some women’s first right to vote in Canada, and great women in Canadian history. • In 2017, the theme was Human Rights in Canada: Challenges and Achievements on the Path to a More Inclusive and Compassionate Society . • In 2018, the theme was Science, Creativity and Innovation: Our Canadian Story . • In 2019, the theme was Working for the Future: A Century of Change in How Canadians Work. • In 2020, the theme was Exploring the History of Canada’s Environment and Climate. This year, Canada History Week highlights stories of Indigenous leadership, languages, and cultures. The topics covered in this magazine, the videos, and the accompanying learning tool barely begin to scratch the surface of Indigenous history, but we hope they can be used as a starting point for learning more about diverse histories of Indigenous peoples in Canada. The week will encourage Canadians to reflect upon and engage with Canada’s past. In doing so, we hope to help Canadians better understand the need for reconciliation in the present, and to encourage us all to work together for a better shared future.
