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 with support from the federal Multiculturalism Program, the Canadian Historical Association began producing a series of booklets on Canada's diverse peoples. There are currently 31 booklets in the Ethnic Groups series and more are 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 is grateful to Foreign Affairs Canada and Library and Archives Canada for helping to reach new readers through the World Wide Web.
