Through the Sir John A. Day project, Historica Canada strives to raise awareness about the life and legacy of Sir John. A Macdonald, a Father of Confederation and Canada’s first prime minister. In 2001, the Canadian Government officially declared January 11 to be Sir John A. Macdonald Day, and in 2015 the nation will celebrate his 200th birthday! In 2015 Historica Canada launched The Make Your Own Heritage Minute: Stories of Sir John A. and the Fathers of Confederation project.
