Message from Minister Glover
Our Government understands the importance of highlighting milestones in our history. This is why we are committed to making it possible for Canadians to learn about the events that had a significant impact on our history and made Canada the nation it is today.
The War of 1812 was one such event. It laid the foundation for Confederation and the cornerstones of many of our political institutions. As we approach Canada's 150th birthday in 2017, we have a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate our pride in this country by investing in activities-like War of 1812 commemorations-that shine a spotlight on our shared heritage and define who we are as Canadians.
Our Government is proud to bring Canadians this website, a resource that brings to life this significant military event that helped shape our country. By bringing Canada's history and culture online, Canadians can learn more about the roots of this great country.
As Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, I invite you to visit this website to explore Canada's history and heritage. I encourage you to participate in all the activities and events that will take place in the coming months. On the road to 2017, let us continue to celebrate all that makes Canada such a remarkable country.
