Adopted in April, 1982, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms embedded equal rights protection for all Canadians into the Constitution. It sets out those rights and freedoms that Canadians believe are necessary in a free and democratic society. This includes affirming linguistic and treaty rights while also explicitly prohibiting discrimination on the basis of colour, religion, sex, age, and disability. If you’re looking for more information on the Charter as we approach the 40th anniversary of its introduction, here are some titles from our catalogue.
In the early morning hours of April 9, 1917, the first wave of 15,000 to 20,000 Canadian soldiers began the attack on Vimy Ridge. Facing snow and sleet, the Canadians confronted heavily armed German forces as they sought to take the strategically important hill in northern France. Over 4 days, all four divisions of the Canadian Corps, fighting together for the first time, took Vimy Ridge. In the years following the First World War, this remarkable military victory, which came at the significant cost of 10,000 killed or wounded Canadians, has became an important national symbol of the sacrifice and courage of Canadian soldiers. You can learn about Vimy Ridge and its legacy in the following publications.
