Canadian History

From Newfoundland to British Columbia, to the farthest reaches of the Territories in the great white North, Canada is a country steeped in rich history. The explorers who mapped the vast terrain make up but a portion of Canada’s fascinating tales. The immigrants who followed came to find better lives.

Canadian stories are filled with grand adventures, deep passion and love of country. Come along with me to explore the intriguing history of Canada. You just might be surprised.
