There are thousands of organizations and individuals in Canada who present live performing arts events. They are part of a dynamic, nation-wide performing arts ecosystem. Whether Canadians live in small rural communities or in large cities, they attend performances at arts festivals, in theatres, concert halls and community spaces. Moreover, they recognize the deeper value of the presentation of performing arts on individual, community and societal levels.

Featured lesson plan: A Canadian Inventory: The way we are!

Students will be expected to use each of the 9 themes listed on pages 8-9 of the Canadian Atlas to provide a general inventory of Canada’s wealth and usage of resources. This lesson is intended as a ‘focus lesson’ in that the information gathered is a summary in nature and will allow students to focus on specific themes in later lessons. Local community relevance is made in a number of areas to connect the student with information presented in the atlas.
