Women in the Canadian Military Resource Kit

  • Military History
This guide includes activities that allow students to explore women’s military history in Canada. This guide does not present a comprehensive overview, but offers a selection of stories and perspectives that explore some women’s experiences in the Canadian military. These activities are best suited to students who have some contextual knowledge of the time periods and conflicts discussed. You may want to provide students with background information on conflicts relating to the activities. The Canadian Encyclopedia is an excellent resource to direct students to for more information. 
This kit was produced by the Memory Project and Historica Canada with the generous support of the Government of Canada. An initiative of Historica Canada, the Memory Project is a volunteer speakers bureau that arranges for veteran and active members of the Canadian Forces to share their stories of military service at schools and community events across the country.
