In the words of The Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages:

I am very pleased that we have launched the Government of Canada History Awards, an initiative that provides students and teachers across Canada with an opportunity to explore our country’s rich history.

With the creation of these awards, our Government is taking an important step to help young Canadians learn more about our history, so that they can better understand where they’ve come from, who they are and what makes them unique as Canadians.
