Welcome to The Memory Project

What is The Memory Project?

An initiative of Historica Canada, the Memory Project is a volunteer speakers bureau that arranges for veterans and Canadian Forces members to share their stories of military service at school and community events across the country. Our speakers have reached more than 3 million Canadians of all ages since 2001.  

Our volunteer speakers are enthusiastic about sharing their first-hand accounts, and their experiences cover topics from front-line battle to peacekeeping to domestic service. The Memory Project Speakers Bureau is available year-round for both school and community groups, and for audiences of all ages. Book a Speaker here. New speakers are always welcome too – if you have a story to share, Become a Speaker here. 

To find the Memory Project oral history archive, as well as resources including videos, images, and articles, visit the Memory Project’s content on The Canadian Encyclopedia
