Student Contest: Closes Tuesday Oct 3rd

We want to hear from you! Tell us in 500 words or in a short video, about why history matters to you, to your community, or to the nation’s future. We’ll share our favourite responses both online, but one participant will be invited to present their response live at the 10th Canada’s History Forum in Ottawa this November.

We think that history is essential for understanding and addressing contemporary issues. Engaging with the past helps individuals, communities and even nations navigate both the present and the future.

That’s why Canada’s History Society has dedicated the 10th Canada’s History Forum to making history relevant. It’s especially important during this sesquicentennial year to think about the many diverse stories that make up Canada’s history. Making history as broad and inclusive as possible is critical to understanding the future.

The deadline for responses is Tuesday, October 3, 2017.
