The Character of our Canadian Military History
Cooperation Courage Communication
Thoughtfulness Responsibility Resilience
Individuals who understand these characteristics, while doing their best to practice them, are successful Canadian citizens today.
Our newest education program takes a unique approach to learning about Canadian Military History by embedding the history content within an experiential, innovative, and team-based learning framework that presents students with memorable opportunities to explore the character traits noted above. The day-long, Museum-based program consists of 4 – 6 modules through which students will progress sequentially, as well as an artifact handling session. Debriefing and individual reflection are both cornerstones of the design.
