Dates d’existence


Historica Canada is Canada’s largest organization working towards educating the public on the Nation’s history and cultural. It is a registered national charitable organization and offers all its programing and information in both English and French.
Historica in its present form began in 2009 after a company merger of the Historica Foundation of Canada and The Dominion Institute, though working under the name of The Historica-Dominion Institute until 2013 when it adopted its present name.
Historica offers many culture enriching programs and information. They are best known for their popular Heritage Minutes. These short 60-second films depict important people or events that have helped shape Canada, often highlighting values that are considered important to the Nation. As of July 2020, they have released 91 episodes since 1991 when the first thirteen minutes were released. They also publish and maintain The Canadian Encyclopedia, a free online resource on Canadian history. Historica Canada offers many educational programs across the country in both languages to promote and aide in the building of Canadian culture.
