What Are the Most Significant Social Change Movements in Canadian History?

February 26, 2015

SEE Change Magazine is working on an exciting new project and they’d love your input.

They’re profiling 10 social change movements and/or events in Canadian history (with a focus on the 20th century) that have impacted the country and helped define who we are as Canadians today.

What are some key events in the history of social change for better economies in Canada that you feel should be included?

Check out Mark Cabaj’s CED & Social Economy: A People’s History for a brief overview of some of the movements for people-centred economies.

Some other ideas gathered so far include:

  • Women’s right to vote/suffragette movement
  • Cooperative Movement
  • Charter of Rights/codification of Human Rights
  • Labour movement
  • Dismantling of Africville
  • Truth and Reconciliation

Stay tuned

A special SEE Change micro-site dedicated specifically to this project will be up soon where you’ll have the opportunity to read stories, view and listen to multimedia content and contribute your own stories, ideas and comments.

In the meantime log in today (or create an account) and comment below or send your comments directly to SEE Change Magazine at info at seechangemagazine.com with the words “History of Social Change” in the subject line.
