Two student receive Government of Canada History Awards

Posted on Thursday, May 3, 2018

Geneviève Richer and Vincent Bergeron, second-year teacher education students, recently received a 2017 Government of Canada History Award (university category) for their learning activity on Regulation 17.   The project allows students to study this key moment for Ontario’s francophones from a historical perspective. Using primary sources, students must recognize and understand the points of view (positive and negative) of the francophone and anglophone elites towards this regulation.  This learning activity was created as part of PED4723, a course taught by Prof. Marie-Hélène Brunet.   Encouraged by Brunet, the two students decided to enter this national competition.  The Government of Canada History Award, which comes with a $2,000 scholarship, is meant to deepen understanding of Canadian history.
