"Tales of pioneer hardship and deprivation have been told many times. Yet still we remember in wonder, that people accomplished so much with so little; that men and women with simple tools, their bare hands, and their own inventiveness cleared the land, drained the swamps, made their own clothing and provided their own food. Through all these difficulties God was with them and they wanted their children educated intellectually and spritually." from Norfolk Street United Church history

Canadian Heritage

As a department of the Canadian government, Canadian Heritage is:

"responsible for national policies and programs that promote Canadian content, foster cultural participation, active citizenship and participation in Canada's civic life, and strengthen connections among Canadians."

On their homepage, visitors can read through the "Headlines" area to get a sense for the programs they sponsor, which include investments in the Yukon's arts scene and programs for aboriginal youth.

Visitors won't want to miss the "Events & Initiatives" area. Here they can learn about the "Canada Day Poster Challenge" and a special website created to celebrate the history and culture of the War of 1812.

On the left-hand side of the site, visitorscan use the "Topics" area to learn more about Canadian culture and traditions. Here interested parties can learn about the Canadian national
anthem, provincial symbols, heritage objects, and the monarchy in Canada.
