On the Road to 2017
2015 has been proclaimed the Year of Sport in Canada. To illustrate the link between sport and the benefits that flow from innovation, LAC recalls the story of one the greatest goaltenders of all time, Jacques Plante.
As Canada approaches its 150th anniversary, LAC is showcasing our culinary heritage by revisiting the book The Frugal Housewife’s Manual, the oldest English Canadian cookbook.
LAC have loaned about 50 records highlighting the pivotal moments that led to the drafting of the British North America Act, on display in the 1867 – Rebellion and Confederation exhibition.
To honour all who have contributed to Canada's effort, LAC is pleased to have loaned to the Canadian War Museum a presentation version of the poem In Flanders Fields, written by Lt-Col. John McCrae.
