Mes­sage from the Chair

Canada's History - - DESTINATIONS - — David Ross

In 2016, Canada’s His­tory reached more than 1.1 mil­lion Cana­di­ans.

The fig­ure is pro­vided by Vivi­data, Canada’s lead­ing me­dia mea­sure­ment ser­vice. It rep­re­sents the num­ber of peo­ple — each and ev­ery one of you — who read the sto­ries we pub­lish in our mag­a­zines and on­line at CanadasHis­

It is es­pe­cially rel­e­vant be­cause it re­flects a di­verse de­mo­graphic that in­creas­ingly mir­rors that of our coun­try.

Whether your fam­ily goes back gen­er­a­tions, or you are re­cent ar­rivals, or you are mem­bers of Indige­nous com­mu­ni­ties that have called Canada home for mil­len­nia, you all of­fer valu­able per­spec­tives on our coun­try’s shared past.

At Canada’s His­tory So­ci­ety, we be­lieve all Cana­di­ans are best served when they share their sto­ries — both with one an­other and with the wider world.

I am pleased to be part of a board of di­rec­tors that rep­re­sents di­ver­sity in ge­og­ra­phy and gen­der, bring­ing a range of his­tory, lan­guage, and pub­lish­ing tal­ent to the work of en­gag­ing Cana­di­ans. We wel­comed Ry Mo­ran and Michael Rea as new mem­bers to our board in 2016.

Our pub­lish­ing and his­tory pro­gram­ming cel­e­brates your sto­ries, wel­comes your per­spec­tives, and helps to con­nect com­mu­ni­ties by pro­mot­ing greater un­der­stand­ing among all cit­i­zens and re­gions.

Thank you for your sup­port.

David Ross
