CPS: Canadian History

Canadian History

Due to the constantly evolving situation with the pandemic, programs will be flexible and may be subject to potential modification.

COURSE OVERVIEW

We were brought to tears when we were able to visit the graves of the soldiers we researched before travelling.

Watch Canadian history come to life across Ontario and Quebec! Travel to Ottawa and visit world-famous museums, memorials, and sites that bring Canadian history from World War I to life. Eat poutine in Place Jacques Cartier, and take in the sights and sounds of Old Montreal before dining at one of Quebec’s most famous sugar shacks.

Learn about and reflect on individual and collective responsibility, ethics, conformism, freedom and human rights at the Holocaust Museum. Take in the wonderment of Montmorency Falls, located only a few minutes from Old Quebec City. Visit Jacques-Cartier National Park, a provincial park that aims to protect wildlife in the Laurentian massif.
