Explore unforgettable moments in our history.

Paul Henderson scores the winning goal in the 1972 Summit Series. A little boy runs after his father marching off to war. Terry Fox is silhouetted by headlights of a police cruiser on his Marathon of Hope. The Snapshots of Canada exhibition pairs 50 compelling images with texts by well-known authors, journalists and historians. Images ranging from high drama to simple joy are tangible reminders of the triumphs, failures and sacrifices that have shaped our country.

The Snapshots of Canada travelling exhibition was developed by the Canadian Museum of History and Canada’s History. The photographs were drawn from 100 Photos That Changed Canada (2009) and 100 Days That Changed Canada (2011), published by Canada’s History and HarperCollins Canada.
