LOVING Courage & Conquest​

My kids are LOVING Courage & Conquest. They cannot get enough of Canadian history. Absolutely love it. We met one of the actors at the Fortress of Louisbourg this past summer, so it’s super fun to learn having been to some of these places.
Canada in the 20th Century
I really appreciate the history course. It gives me an in depth look at Canadian History and Culture! I enjoy the videos and resources and they help me really understand the content. I highly recommend this! Especially for people in highschool. The course has a lot to it and takes a lot of time but it is really interesting!

I didn’t realize there was so much additional content available on the website with the Lite Membership. I’ve downloaded the pdf of the out-of-print Symbols of Canada in the Lite Membership and it looks wonderful. Thank you for your help!
