Historica is the website for the Historica Foundation whose mandate is to provide Canadians with a deeper understanding of their history and its importance in shaping their future. The foundation accomplishes this mandate in a number of ways. 

Heritage Fairs take place in every province and territory in Canada in May and feature public exhibitions of Canadian student history projects, displays and workshops.  The culmination of the Heritage Fairs is the National Heritage Fair, hosted in mid-July by a different community in Canada. Students whose history projects are selected at the Regional Fairs gather together from all Canadian provinces and territories where their projects are showcased and where they participate in a week long History Camp which includes exploration of a part of the country they might otherwise never have a chance to visit.

Historica also sponsors a national Summer Institute for teachers of Canadian history as part of its Professional Development program.  Each summer, elementary, middle and secondary school teachers from across Canada come together in a bilingual setting for the professional development experience of a lifetime.

The most well known activity that can be found on the Historica site are the Heritage Minutes.  The Heritage Minutes are one minute highlights of some of the best and most exciting aspects of Canadian history that have appeared on television for over ten years.  Sponsored by the CRB Foundation, there are now over sixty Heritage Minute programs. The programs are searchable by province/territiory, time period (pre 1799 - first contact; 1800-1866 – Building a Nation; 1867-1899 – The Young Country; 1900-1930 – Into The Twentieth Century; 1931-1945 – Tough Times; 1946- Present – Canada Today) and theme (ranging from Arts, First Nations and Heroes to Innovators, Sports, Women and more).

The Historica site also has available for teachers very useful lesson plans, a detailed synopsis of each Heritage Minute and the opportunity to order all the Heritage Minutes on VHS video for classroom viewing.  It’s a great way to introduce students to the wonderful and exciting achievements of Canadians throughout the years.
