ChristianRoots Canada is an online teaching website.
We dig as far back in our nation’s history as we are able to, so we can gain insights of
where we came from,
where we are right now
and where we hope to be in the future.
We seek to learn from yesterday to make a better tomorrow for our children and grandchildren.

Canadian History with New Eyes
Canadian History With New Eyes is a ‘story-based’ History curriculum.
It links our history to the marble frieze mounted over the left doorway of the House of Commons.
Covering 200 years of history, this frieze shows King Francis I of France on the left, and King Louis XIV on the right.
It uncovers the stories of the French Protestants (Huguenots) who invested their lives and resources to establish the first colonies in the Atlantic Provinces (Acadia), Quebec and Ontario (New France).
It exposes the reason why this marble frieze represents stories of the persecution of the Huguenots, which started under Francis I and continued under all but one king. Learn More.
