Curriculum Overview

ChristianRoots Canada is in the process of developing the first Chronological History of Canada from the perspective of God’s Providence. This is more than just a historical timeline of important events.

This chronology will mimic chronological events laid out for us in the books of the Old Testament that deal with the history of God’s people. As such, we approach Canadian History as a series of stories of people’s lives and the events they triggered to create HISTORY.

We will help you to view Canadian History ‘With New Eyes’.

Most of the research has already been done for this curriculum which chronicles the Christian foundations of Canada from the time of the French monarchs to Confederation, from the nation-building years to the Charter, and from the Charter to present.

Other Courses ‘In The Works’ include:

  • Canadian History With New Eyes – The Native Connection
  • Canadian History With New Eyes – The British Connection
  • Canadian History With New Eyes – Confederation
  • Canadian History With New Eyes – Nation Building
  • Canadian History With New Eyes – Christian Influence After The Charter

A – I have already done much of the research which deals with the settlement of the Atlantic Provinces while they were yet colonies of Britain, the process of Confederation, the laying down of our laws, how our fundamental freedoms were changed under the Charter, and how we have been steadily moving away from our moorings. The research is being organized into modules and lessons. As soon as they are ready, you will be informed.
