To mark the centennial of the first achievements of women’s suffrage in Canada, Historica
Canada (the country’s largest organization dedicated to enhancing awareness of Canada’s
history and citizenship) has created this Education Guide.
Developed in line with the concepts created by Dr. Peter Seixas and the Historical Thinking
Project, this Guide complements Canadian middle-school and high-school curricula. It invites
students to deepen their understanding of gender equality and democracy through research
and analysis, engaging discussion questions, and group activities. It asks students to examine
issues of identity, equity, activism and justice in historical and contemporary contexts.
