The Heritage Fairs program is a multi-media learning program developed to increase public awareness and interest in Canadian history and heritage. The goal is to offer students the opportunity to explore the many aspects of their Canadian heritage in a dynamic learning environment and present the results of their efforts in a public exhibition.
Students use the medium of their choice to tell stories and share information about Canadian people, events, milestones and achievements. Students begin their research early in the school year, then present their projects in the spring at regional venues, which the public is invited to attend. There they are judged and a few are selected to attend provincial and national Heritage Fairs.
