  • National Archives of Canada

    From the first voyages of discovery to the social revolutions of the present day, the story of Canada is best told by the people who lived that story. Their countless letters, diaries, pictures, official documents and records serve as the collective memory of the nation.

    The National Archives of Canada preserves Canada's archival heritage, and makes it available to Canadians through a wide variety of means - publications, exhibitions, special events, as well as reference and researcher services.

    Founded in 1872, the Archives' collections today include millions of records, including texts, photographs, films, maps, videos, books, paintings, prints and government files, that bring the past to life. We encourage all members of the public to visit the National Archives of Canada - to pursue a special field of research, to view the constantly changing exhibitions, to learn more about Canada's rich and diverse heritage.

  • Australia & New Zealnd in France WW1

    The Somme is a river that gave its name to a "département" (France is made of 95 départements). The Somme département is situated in the North of France and is well known for its numerous historic places and is a symbol of the British Commonwealth troops committing during the First World War. This website has been conceived for helping overseas visitors to organise their travel to the Somme battlefields and memorials and to follow in the Australian and New Zealander fighters' footsteps. Their sacrifice memory is firmly rooted in everybody's mind, and we are very glad to help the "Aussies and Kiwis" to set up their visit and stay in the Somme département.
