 As part of its Canada 150 celebration, the Ontario Heritage Fairs Association and York University have partnered on Provincial Fair 2017!
Canada150_-_York_Log_-_Horizontal.jpg
The York University History Department, in conjunction with its partners, notably the Archives of Ontario,
organized several distinct but interconnected projects to be held in connection with the upcoming
sesquicentennial of Canadian Confederation of 1867 in 2017.  Canada150@York is designed for many
audiences, and will be delivered through a range of media. These programs will illuminate a wide array
of fascinating perspectives about the events of the 1860s in what is now called Canada, and the implications
of them that have since arisen.

The Provincial Fair is not a competition.
