In the past, national commemoration of social and community life lagged behind recognition of political and economic subjects, but opportunities for new commemorations are growing. History, a process rather than a fixed state, is constantly being re-evaluated by evolving perceptions of the past and is enriched by ongoing human activity. As many social organizations and movements mature and the national commemorative program expands its identification of the nationally important aspects of Canada's social history, new subjects that merit commemoration will emerge. In addition, the interest of the public and the maturing of social history as a scholarly discipline should result in a more widespread recognition of important social achievements in Canada's past.
