Designed to meet the expectations for the history strand of the Ontario curriculum, Discovering Canada’s Government covers Canada’s system of government today. Students learn about the federal government and the parliamentary system, the judicial system, the constitution and human rights in Canada, Aboriginal self-government, and active citizenship.
