Historica Canada

Historica Canada is the largest independent organization devoted to enhancing awareness of Canadian history and citizenship. Our programs, all of which are offered bilingually, reach more than eight million Canadians annually. Our staff regularly travel coast to coast to coast to meet participants and promote engagement in our activities. Our programs are aimed at appealing to Canadians of all ages and backgrounds, although several specifically focus on youth.

NCTR’s spirit name – bezhig miigwan, meaning “one feather”.

Bezhig miigwan calls upon us to see each Survivor coming to the NCTR as a single eagle feather and to show those Survivors the same respect and attention an eagle feather deserves. It also teaches we are all in this together — we are all one, connected, and it is vital to work together to achieve reconciliation.
