About The Memory Project Speakers’ Bureau
Created in 2001, The Memory Project is one of The Historica-Dominion Institute’s most successful educational programmes designed to connect veterans, serving soldiers, and students online and in classrooms across the country. The Memory Project Speakers' Bureau includes 2,000 volunteers from across Canada who visit classrooms and community groups to share their stories with youth.
Memory Project speakers represent a wide range of conflicts, including the Second World War, Korean War, Peacekeeping Operations and other Canadian Forces experiences. To date, these veteran and Canadian Forces volunteers have reached more than 1 million young people.
The Memory Project Speakers Bureau is a project of The Historica-Dominion Institute, the largest independent organization dedicated to Canadian history, identity and citizenship.
