What are
the Heritage

The acclaimed Heritage Minutes are one-minute movies that portray exciting and important stories from Canada’s past.

These brief but inspiring history highlights are useful as teaching aids — the Heritage Minutes are screened in many classrooms across Canada.

The Heritage Minutes have been a familiar part of Canada’s cultural landscape since 1991. So familiar, in fact, they have been imitated and parodied by comedians.
