Canada's creative spirit in arts, sciences and industry is clearly exemplified by the accomplishments of Sanford Fleming, the dynamic chief engineer of the Canadian Pacific Railway who surveyed the first rail route across Canada, designed our first postage stamp and achieved lasting international fame as the "Father of Standard Time."

 

In Montréal, Canadian surgeon Wilder Penfield revolutionized the techniques of brain surgery, using his scalpel and electronic probes to reveal many of the secrets of cognition, memory and sensation.

 

On 12 December 1901, Guglielmo Marconi received the first trans-Atlantic radio transmission on Signal Hill. Three short beeps, a single “s” in Morse code, marked the beginning of a new era in instantaneous global communication.

 

These Minutes tell the stories of Canadian innovators.

Canada's crowning achievement in the year of its centennial was Expo 67. One of the most successful international exhibitions of the 20th century, Expo 67 gave Montréal the opportunity to show itself as a world-class city and proved once and for all that Canada had come of age.

 

But Canada's international reputation was formed on more than just expositions. Canada also has a history of human rights advocacy and humanitarian generosity.

 

John Humphrey made human rights a matter of global concern as the author of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

 

Lucille Teasdale's extraordinary selflessness and determination to help those in need make her one of Canada's most remarkable women.

 

These Minutes highlight a few of Canada's contributions to the world.
