The Canadian Historical Association publishes a series of booklets on aspects of Canadian history. Written in accessible prose by specialists, they are published in both English and French.
The first CHA booklet, The Undefended Border: The Myth and the Reality, by C.P. Stacey, appeared in 1953. Since that time, 63 more booklets in the general series have appeared. They have proven popular with students, teachers and the general public.
In 1979 the Canadian Historical Association, with support from the federal Multiculturalism Program, began producing a series of booklets on Canada's diverse peoples. There are currently 30 booklets in Canada's Ethnic Groups series and more in press.
In 2005 the Canadian Historical Association concluded an agreement with Library and Archives Canada to digitize the booklets for online access. The project was funded through a grant from Foreign Affairs Canada. The CHA are grateful to Foreign Affairs Canada and Library and Archives Canada for helping us to reach new readers through the World Wide Web.
