The Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) is a non-profit organization whose main objective is to increase Canadians’ knowledge of their country's history via conferences, publications, learning materials and research. The ACS initiates and supports multidisciplinary projects and activities which offer potential for enhancing knowledge about Canadian society. The ACS directs special attention to the manner in which key historical events shape current realities.
The ACS continuously works on broadening its nationwide network of history educators, high school teachers, college and university professors, professional researchers, historians, writers, journalists and policy makers. This network allows the ACS to foster a unique environment for cross-sectoral and multi-disciplinary conversations about our country, its past, present and its future.
