Canada: Who Do We Think We Are?


Canada: Who Do We Think We Are? is a new exhibition by Library and Archives Canada (LAC) marking the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation.

Each month in 2017 a guest curator will add a new exhibit to the online virtual exhibition.
 
Isabelle Charron was the guest curator for March with a map of New France made by the Father of Canada, Samuel de Champlain. Ms. Charron has written an article about herself and the map. She also includes several other images at https://thediscoverblog.com/2017/03/09/guest-curator-isabelle-charron/
