1918 Influenza Pandemic

Working in coordination with the Department of Canadian Heritage, Library and Archives Canada (LAC), the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Archives of Ontario, Canada’s History magazine, Huron College UWO, Nova Scotia Museum, St. John’s College – University of Manitoba, the Université du Québec à Rimouski (UQAR), and dozens of Canadian school boards, heritage organizations, and institutions across the country, Defining Moments Canada’s Digital Commons will provide a nationwide forum for participants to create and share commemorative projects and content, featuring local and regional stories about the pandemic.

Most significantly will be the opportunity to feature “voices” from diverse Canadian communities that have never been heard. Indeed, this is the greatest Canadian story never told – a story that has been truly forgotten.
