This course surveys Canada’s past to 1867. It looks at the original inhabitants, Indigenous Peoples; French settlers and English conquerors; colonial immigrants, labourers, businessmen, politicians, and women. These historical agents are studied through associated significant events, such as group contact/relations, expansion/settlement processes, military battles/rebellions, economic undertakings, and political evolutions. Major analytical categories of race/ethnicity, class, and gender as well as
concepts of historical consciousness help inform these examinations. From their study, students should come to better understand the time before Confederation and be more able to place Canada’s current context into perspective.
