INTRODUCTION

THE SYSTEM OF NATIONAL HISTORIC SITES OF CANADA



E very Canadian has an image of what Canada is. It may feature places, such as the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, the birthplace of Confederation in Charlottetown, the fortifications of Québec, grain elevators on the Prairies or totem poles on the West Coast. It may focus on people, such as Nobel Peace Prize winner Lester B. Pearson or Métis leader Louis Riel. It may recall events, such as the winning of the vote by women or the arrival of Underground Railroad refugees into Canada.
