Veterans’ Week and Remembrance Day honour those who sacrificed their lives for the cause of freedom.

Learning about our national history and Canada’s role in significant world events is an important and valued part of social studies in Alberta. In high school social studies courses, students may examine the contributions of Canada’s military as part of their consideration of globalization, the pursuit of nationalism, and internationalism and the roles and responsibilities of citizens in times of conflict. The K–12 Social Studies Program of Studies (français) also provides opportunities for students in all grades to examine current affairs, such as this year’s 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
