Canada History Week 2020

#HistoryWeek2020 Canada History Week provides all Canadians with opportunities to learn more about the people and events that have shaped the country we know today. Canada has many unique people, places, and events to discover. Canada History Week is a great time to discover them! Take a look at our 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 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. This week highlights environmental history in Canada. Throughout the week, we’ll share stories of environmental educators, activists, and conservationists. Canada History Week is a great way to highlight the importance of the past in guiding our civic and public participation, including protecting our environment. Small actions can make a big difference, and environmental stewardship can begin at home, in the classroom, or in your local community. We hope you’ll take time this week to learn and think about how we can work together to preserve our planet.
