Skip to Content is a web-based project that aims to make historical research more accessible to policy makers, the media and the public. There are four ways that we seek to meet these goals: 1) We publish short research-based papers on topics relevant to Canadian History; 2) We manage a database of people with historical expertise in order to make it easier to find people working on a particular historical subject; 3) We publish short book reviews that fit within’s mandate; 4) We promote events, websites and other resources that share a similar mandate through our blog and partnerships. is an inclusive project that aims to bring together people and groups who have an interest in encouraging historical thinking in Canada.
