This year’s theme, “Exploring the history of Canada’s environment and climate,” highlights historic achievement in conservation and preservation, climate science and activism, as well as Indigenous environmental stewardship in Canada.
Canadian Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault on his message to the nation said, "During this week and throughout the year, I encourage you to take time to discover the stories, the people and the major events that influenced the course of Canada’s environmental and climate history. You can view a digital magazine and three videos that highlight important environmental stories from Canada’s past, and share what you have learned through social media using the hashtag #HistoryWeek2020."
Situated in Gatineau, Quebec, with roots stretching back to 1856, Canadian Museum of History, one of Canada’s oldest public institutions and a centre of museological excellence, shares its expertise in history, archaeology, ethnology and cultural studies both within Canada and abroad.
