PLEASE NOTE: This is not a student facing collection of works. Please don’t do this as homework or otherwise attempt it without working with me.

Materials from Elections Canada.

You will receive a set of case study cards. From there examine the cards and place them on the timeline both chronologically and by inclusion/exclusion.

Timeline (large – multiple pages to be printed):

History of voting rights:


Questions for Reflection:

  1. What events in the case studies were surprising to you? What events do you have questions about?
  2. Does getting the right to vote always mean inclusion in democracy? What other ways are groups included in or excluded from democracy today?
  3. Were there turning points in the history of the vote in Canada? Would you change your initial placement of the Turning Point frame now that you’ve looked at the experiences of several groups?
