Canada Year Book Historical Collection
Learning about Canada's past just became a bit easier with the Canada Year
Book Historical Collection website. The site provides access to one hundred
years worth of the annual "Canada Year Book".
These books cover the years 1867 to 1967, and visitors will get the opportunity to learn about social and economic history from across the provinces.
Visitors can browse by year or topic, and looking over the topics, which include "Occupations" and Economic Gains" is a good way to start. Additionally, visitors can also browse tables, charts, and maps as they see fit.
Educators will want to look through the "Tools and Reference" area, as it contains lesson plans and a set of links to related sites
