RAsia/Canada Website and Quiz from The Historica-Dominion Institute

Canada has long been a part of the Asia Pacific sphere. The Historica-Dominion Institute Asia/Canada web site explores the relationship between East and West from earliest times, when dreams of finding Cathay fired the imaginations of the explorers, to the Asia Canada experience in the present day, when Asians make up an ever more visible presence in the Canadian mosaic and Asia’s economic importance to Canada is growing. The web site discusses the Asian experience in Canada, the evolution of Canadian society itself, from exclusion to greater tolerance and an embrace of diversity, and Canada’s role as a Pacific nation.
