This course is a survey of the leading developments and themes in Canadian history from the
Confederation in 1867 to the 1990s. It will treat the various individuals and cultures which have
contributed to building the Post-Confederation society and their role in shaping the present.
The course serves as a foundation for the study of Canadian history at a more advanced level. It
will provide students with the basic knowledge of the subject and introduce them to different
interpretations of key events and processes in the nation’s past. Through writing assignments and
occasional in-class discussions, students will develop their ability to critically evaluate primary
and secondary sources and enhance their research and creative writing skills.
J.M. Bumstead, The Peoples of Canada: A Post-Confederation History (Oxford University Press)
The Internet is an excellent source of information on Canadian history. However, you need to pay
attention to the quality of the website you’re looking at. Some sites provide detailed and reliable
information, while others can be less accurate or even misleading.
Here are some recommended Internet resources:
http://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.com/ (an online version of Canadian Encyclopedia; good as
a starting point)
http://www.biographi.ca/index2.html (Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online – provides bios
of all noteworthy characters in Canadian history)
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/topics/index-e.html (Library and Archives Canada site, which
has a large selection of digitised documents, virtual exhibitions and research aids on various
topics in Canadian history)
www.canadiana.org (a large collection of early Canadian primary documents but somewhat
unwieldy to use)
http://atlas.nrcan.gc.ca/site/english/index.html (The Atlas of Canada)
http://www.ourfutureourpast.ca/ (a collection of material relating to Alberta History, including
scanned images of early Alberta newspapers)
Mid-Term Exam
July 20
August 3
Final Examination
August 11
Students must submit original assignments and keep photocopies of all submitted work for
themselves. Assignments can be handed in to the instructor in class or submitted to the drop-box

ESSAY (30%)
Students will write a 2,500-word research essay (approximately 9-10 pages of double-spaced 12pt text excluding footnotes and bibliography). The essay should be double-spaced, paginated,
have a title page and adequate margins. It should be properly footnoted using the Chicago
Humanities Style, with a full bibliography attached at the end. The bibliography should include a
minimum of 5 secondary sources (books and/or scholarly articles).
For help on writing a history essay, consult The Essay Writing Guide, available from the
Department of History and Classics in hard copy and online at
Secondary Sources
Secondary sources are works created by historians, normally after the events in question have
occurred. You should only use specialized studies (books and articles) written by professional
historians on the subject of your paper. Many academic articles in Canadian history can be found
through the America: History and Life database.
Textbooks, general histories of Canada, encyclopaedias, dictionaries, book reviews, audiovisual resources and magazine articles are not considered acceptable secondary sources for
the purposes of this assignment. For useful selections of secondary sources on various topics
covered in this course, check suggested readings at the end of each chapter in your textbook. If
unsure about your selection of sources, contact the instructor. While Internet sites (such as
Wikipedia, Canadian Encyclopedia Online or any others) may be consulted as starting points in
your research, they do not qualify as secondary sources and should not appear in your notes or
Your essay will be graded on your ability to formulate a research argument and support it with
evidence presented in a well-organized and logical form. Writing style is important for history
papers. Your paper should be written in coherent English, use correct grammar and punctuation
throughout, and avoid colloquial or journalistic expressions.

and to uphold the policies of the University in this respect. Students are particularly urged to

The format of the mid-term (30%) and final (40%) exams will be discussed in detail later in the
