Canada and the Second World War

From farms to factories to fighting, the Second World War touched Canadians in many ways. Learn more about Canada and the Second World War in the latest issue of Kayak: Canada's History Magazine for Kids.

Bonus: Many of the articles in Kayak are digitized so you can share them with students at home. See what's in the April 2020 issue

Virtual Heritage Fair

At Canada’s History, we have been talking a lot about how we can support Heritage Fair students while schools are closed and fairs are cancelled. We know many students have already started or finished their projects, and we want to encourage their work by providing an opportunity for them to still share their research.  

As such, we are launching a Virtual Heritage Fair! From April 15 to May 1, we will showcase the Heritage Fair projects from participating students on our new Instagram account: @heritagefairs_fetespatrimoine

We invite you to check out the contest details, share the news of this program with your students, and encourage them to submit a Virtual Heritage Fair project.
