Non-Annual Activities and Events

Summer Exhibit - One Canada: Diefenbaker's Vision

The “One Canada: Diefenbaker’s Vision” exhibit was part of the 2019 museum summer opening.  Viewing was at the Historical Museum from Monday, July 15th and continuing to the end of the summer season. 

This exhibit explores the goals of Canada’s 13th Prime Minister to create an equitable country that derives strength from diversity. The purpose of the exhibit is to spark conversations about nationalism, identity, human rights and how we as Canadians view our country as a unified nation. Part of the exhibit includes lesser-known stories about Diefenbaker’s life.
