It is designed to introduce students to the major social, economic, political and military events of the era as well as to the individuals shaping events. The course will also highlight the themes and issues debated in the scholarly literature. The course will emphasise the history of Canada’s First Peoples as the foundation of our past. We will trace the founding of New France and the contact experience as well as the European rivalries over the land. We will follow the development of colonial societies and the challenges faced by the first settlers in organising their societies culturally, economically and politically. This course offers students the opportunities to engage in weekly tutorial discussions, to critically assess and compare secondary articles and to engage in their own primary and secondary research.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
