“What Did Confederation Accomplish? Historical Perspectives on 150 Years of Canada” is a documentary video series that explores the achievements and consequences of Confederation over the past 150 years from multiple perspectives. Featuring interviews with expert scholars in the fields of Canadian history and Canadian Studies from York University, this video series explores the effects of Confederation in five broad themes: Indigenous peoples, environment, labour, French Canada, and women. This unique approach to thinking about the long-term consequences of the creation of the Dominion of Canada will expose viewers to a diverse set of views and understandings of Canada’s past.
