Social Studies will help you develop the basic knowledge, skills, and positive attitudes of active and responsible citizens – both locally and globally. At the heart of Social Studies are the concepts of citizenship and identity in the Canadian context – history, geography, economics, social and behavioural sciences, and humanities. Incorporated into all areas are critical and creative thinking skills.

Social Studies courses explore relationships among individuals in various societies and between societies. You examine cultural, economic, ethical, legal, political, and religious issues that communities face. These courses focus on understanding: who am I, what kind of society do I want, and how do I and others shape our world?
