Canada By Treaty: Histories of a Negotiated Place

April 28 – May 25, Hart House Map Room Exhibit 

The exhibit explores treaties, those legal agreements with Indigenous peoples that allowed non-Indigenous people to live on and own land in what is now Canada. The four-week exhibit responds to the 150th anniversary of Confederation by explaining in accessible language the long history of treaty making, and how and why these agreements were essential to the foundation of modern Canada. Co-curated by fourth year undergraduate James Bird, Nehiyawak (Cree), Indigenous Studies and Architecture, and Department of History Professors Laurie Bertram and Heidi Bohaker, the exhibit draws on content created by students in Professor Bohaker’s Fall 2016 joint fourth year/graduate seminar “Canada By Treaty.”

New door hooks

Ever wondered what keeps our doors open?

We recently received new hooks forged by a son of the parish, Constable Joel Houston.  Did we mention that Constable Houston is part of the mounted unit for the Toronto Police Service? Deluxe delivery service as well as manufacturing the hooks.

Have a look at the process from horseshoe to door below:
