Early Canadian History

A survey of Canadian history, from pre-historical times to the institution of responsible government in 1848. The story of Canada will be presented as a continuous sequence of events that affected the development of our country — including the landing of Vikings in L’Anse aux Meadows, the voyages of Cabot, Cartier and Champlain, settlement in Quebec and Nova Scotia, founding of the Hudson’s Bay Company, early relations and treaties with indigenous people, the War of 1812, rebellions in Upper and Lower Canada and more. Events will be examined in the context of the times as well as from a contemporary perspective to gain a deeper understanding of our past.
