Canadian History Since World War 1 (CHC2D) explores Canada’s history since 1914. 

We’ll explore how Canada became what it is today through the stories and events often overlooked by traditional Canadian history courses.

Jews came to Canada as immigrants and, in many instances, saw sports (of all things!) as a way to feel more at home in Canada. As we delve into these stories, we’ll explore how social, economic and political changes impact the lives and identities of all Canadians.

This course fulfills the compulsory requirement for Grade 10 Canadian History.

CHC2D is a year course beginning in October. 

We meet twice a week for 25 weeks, with all Jewish and civil holidays off.

Although we’d like you to start in October, you can join the course up until the end of November. 

There are homework assignments that drop in Google Classroom at the beginning of each month that are due at the end of the month. Select one (or two, depending on the month) that interests you most.

There are no exams or tests.  

As we approach the end of the year, we will meet to plan your Culminating work which will explore a topic you find compelling!

The Culminating is due at the end of June.

The clip above is the (now) famous “I Am Canadian” rant which anchored a Molson beer ad campaign in March, 2000.  As much as we Canadians think we know what a “Canadian” is, this commercial presents a particular perspective.

Yes, it’s filled with stereotypes of Canadians (and Americans), but it seems to have struck a chord with a lot of Canadians.

Why? In this course, we’ll address this question and so many more about our history and how Canada became Canada.
