Canada Since 1945 (HIST*3180)

Code and section: HIST*3180*01

Term: Fall 2016

Instructor: M. Hayday


This course provides an in-depth examination of political, social, cultural, and economic changes in Canada since the Second World War. Particular attention will be paid to the increased diversity of the Canadian population, the development of Canadian institutions, and the changing role played by Canada in the world.  We will be examining the impact of both the baby boom and significant changes in immigration policy on Canadian institutions.  Significant attention will also be paid to Canadian foreign policy, and Canada’s changing interactions with its major allies.  The emergence of a new “Canadian” culture as a result of demographic changes, social movements, public policy and constitutional reform will also be discussed.
