Canadian History Resources

In the Spring of 2020, we got an inquiry from a local teacher seeking online resources to help her teach about modern Canadian history in a suddenly distanced world. Here are the ones we came up with. While the Creston Museum did create some of these resources, many of them are coming from other museums – please let us know if any of these links have since changed and we’ll try to update them!
