The Letter Athematic framework is a way to organize or define history to identify and place sites, persons and events in context. The thematic framework for National Historic Sites provides a comprehensive way of looking at Canadian history.

The new framework contained in this document builds on the 1981 themes, but is simpler in approach, responds to evolving concerns and interests, and reflects recent scholarship on the evolution of Canadian historiography.
