Update September 2020
Thank you for your interest in AncestryProject.ca. We are transitioning from a membership-based website to a publisher website – many resources will be compiled into paid digital downloads and/or print books.
In January 2021 we will relaunch and expand out content with new units on the artist Tom Thomson, writer Alice Munro and the First Nations filmmaker Obomsawin and architect Douglas Cardinal.
It’s an exciting process. We will publish a book that compiles all of our content content, including teacher’s guide, handouts and activities. We will offer free samples of this content to registered users.
If you would like to preview our free samples all you have to do is register/apply for membership. Membership is usually restricted to teachers and people working in education and training.
Thanks for visiting!
