Canada's Story (Series) (1966)

Produced by the National Film Board, Canada's Story was a series of twenty films that dramatized moments in the history of the country over four hundred years. They ranged from the explorers- John Cabot, Henry Hudson, Samuel de Champlain, Alexander Mackenzie, David Thompson- to military and political conflicts such as the battle of the Plains of Abraham and the 1837 Rebellion in Upper Canada, to the struggles for self-government, with films on William Lyon Mackenzie, Joseph Howe, Louis-Joseph Papineau, and Confederation.

The NFB produced most of the films under the collective title, The History Makers. The Struggle for Self-Government series was completed in 1961, the Prelude to Confederation series in 1962, and the Explorers series in 1964.
