The War of 1812 was a dramatic event in Canadian history. But what was at stake, and who won? The Diefenbaker Canada Centre is proud to bring a travelling exhibition produced by the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa to Saskatoon that explores the War of 1812 through the perspectives of the four central participants: Canadians (including Canadian First Peoples), Americans, the British, and Native Americans.
The Diefenbaker Canada Centre (DCC) is a dynamic cultural, educational, and historical institution. Located on the stately University of Saskatchewan campus, the DCC is the only combined Prime Ministerial archives, museum and research centre in Canada.
Existing to celebrate Canadian history, the museum preserves and interprets core collections representing the life and times of John G. Diefenbaker, presents national and international cultural exhibitions, and develops educational and public programs in keeping with the high academic standards of the University of Saskatchewan. Our particular themes are citizenship, leadership, and Canada’s role in the international community.
