Library and Archives Canada develops and tours exhibitions featuring items from our extensive collection, bringing our documentary heritage to communities across and outside Canada.

The following exhibitions are currently on tour.

Where Are the Children? Healing the Legacy of the Residential Schools

This exhibition, the result of a partnership between Library and Archives Canada, the Aboriginal Healing Foundation and the Legacy of Hope Foundation, encourages dialogue and understanding about the effects of the residential school system on the First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities. Over 200,000 people have viewed the exhibition since it opened in 2002. A virtual exhibition is available at www.wherearethechildren.ca/en/home.html.

The Peter Winkworth Collection of Canadiana

In March 2002, Library and Archives Canada acquired more than 4,000 works of art from one private collector, Mr. Peter Winkworth (1929-2005). The Peter Winkworth Collection of Canadiana exhibitions will be unveiled to Canadians as a series of regional presentations, with works from the Atlantic provinces; Quebec; Ontario; the Prairies, the Northwest Territories and the North; and the Pacific Coast and the Yukon. Each exhibition focuses on developments in Canadian history as they relate to conflict and commerce, the geography of the land and the nature of its inhabitants, and the evolution of Canadian society. Enjoy these selections for their informative value, their aesthetic appeal, their quality of execution, and more--for their unique perspective on Canada's past.

A virtual exhibition of part of the Peter Winkworth Collection is also available for viewing online at www.collectionscanada.ca/art/050602_e.html.
