The Call to Duty: Canada's Nursing Sisters - Library and Archives Canada

Women left their families and homes to answer the call to duty and serve their country. Many worked in substandard conditions, with poor sanitation and limited supplies of water. They cared for soldiers with horrendous wounds caused by new advancements in weaponry. Canadian nurses adapted to a situation that was completely unlike their lives in Canada, and for which their work in Canadian hospitals could not possibly have prepared them.

Photography - Library and Archives Canada. Our Voices, Our Histories. Based on the evidence available, scientists think that about 4.6 billion years ago, a large star ended its life in a massive explosion.

Our Voices, Our Histories

Gas and dust from the exploding star scattered over dozens of light years into an immense cloud called a nebula. This nebula was enormous: one light year is about 9 trillion kilometres. Even though a nebula is a remnant of destruction, it can also become a place of creation — a stellar “nursery” where new suns are formed. The gas and dust in a nebula isn’t evenly spread out, but clumpy. Some denser regions have higher gravity, which draws in more and more material that sticks together until it becomes so dense that it collapses into a donut or disc shape called a nebular disc.

When our solar system was still a nebular disc, the intense heat created when it formed meant that most of its matter was not solid or liquid, but vapour. Primary Sources and Teaching Links.

The project The Historical Atlas of Canada was a three-volume collaborative research and publishing project, finished in 1993, which used maps text and other graphics to explore themes in the history of Canada. The Historical Atlas of Canada was published in English and French versions, the last volume in 1993. In 1998, the Concise Historical Atlas of Canada was published, a selection of plates from the original volumes, with new essays connecting them.

The Atlas uses thematic mapping to describe events, issues or patterns in Canada's development. The Historical Atlas of Canada Online Learning Project is intended to make the maps and data generated for the Atlas available to a wider audience by re-designing them for the Internet. In some cases, new data and maps have been compiled and created for the Online Learning Project, and in other cases, information from maps has been combined and consolidated in a new form. An important addition to the Online version are a series of Maptours. Diaries of William Lyon Mackenzie King - Library and Archives Canada.
