Upper Canada Village
Construction of Upper Canada Village began in 1958 as part of the St. Lawrence Seaway project, which required the permanent flooding of ten communities in the area, known as The Lost Villages. Upper Canada Village was a part of the project’s heritage preservation plan. Many of the buildings in Upper Canada Village were transported directly from the villages to be flooded.
At the time when citizens did courageous acts to defend their land, country, communities, they may not have conscientiously known the impact they were having on future generations. Today, we can instantaneously see the results of our efforts. This through both today’s world-wide “24-hour” media and through the Internet’s “real-time” technologies.
We rush, rush, rush. Many decisions are made today without realizing the impact they will have on our future. Today’s society needs to continue on the path of “united” generosity – in kindness, service and actions! We all should reflect on our past – for without it, we would not be where we are today!
Our “History in Motion” action video series encourages viewers to go “Back in Time” and “Reflect on Our Past”!
