Big Ideas
  • Demographic changes in North America created shifts in economic and political power.
  • Canada’s policies and treatment of minority peoples have negative and positive legacies.
  • Canadian institutions and government reflect the challenge of our regional diversity.
  • Immigration and multiculturalism continue to shape Canadian society and identity.
  • Economic self-interest can be a significant cause of conflict among peoples and governments.
  • Systems of government vary in their respect for human rights and freedoms.
  • Collective identity is constructed and can change over time.
  • Disparities in power alter the balance of relationships between individuals and between societies.
  • Emerging ideas and ideologies profoundly influence societies and events.
  • COVID Precautions
    Kits are quarantined for a minimum of one week in between loans to prevent viral transmission from one classroom to another. We recommend limiting the number of different people handling the objects, and using nitrile gloves (not provided) if multiple people handle the objects.
