Canada's History Magazine
iOS Universal Newsstand
Discover Canadian history as you’ve never seen it before - the stuff with the guts and glory, the people with heart and soul. Boldly designed, each issue of Canada's History is a treasure of Canadian stories waiting to be discovered - a mix of engaging features, columns, reviews and commentary plus historic photos, maps and illustrations.
Some of what you encounter in our pages will inevitably be about people, places and events that you think you already know: In our pages, those stories will come alive for you like never before – rich with new details, deeper context and fresh relevance. But much of what you discover in Canada’s History will be new to you: Stories of crime and courage, genius and cunning, triumph and disaster... of determined women and desperate men, teetotalers and tavern-keepers, inventors and explorers ... of spies, pirates, scoundrels – and heroes!
You’ll hear a lively variety of voices, with contributors that include historians, authors and
journalists – as well as museum curators and history enthusiasts – from right across the country – contributors such as Charlotte Gray, Tim Cook, Christopher Moore, Jack Granatstein, plus many more!
