Developing Canadian Identity 1945-1982
When imagining how the Canadian identity was formed, it is important to look at how events changed society as a whole, and how the people within Canada were affected, which changes both the history to be studied and its relation to present day society. These lessons intend to examine these effects on society and the people. The following general expectation has been chosen to base these lessons on, which are supported by the overall and specific expectations set forth by the ministry of education. These eight lessons are intended to examine the social and political climate of the Post WWII period and analyze how individuals, events, communities, trends, and developments affected Canadian society and the Canadian people into the present day.
