Heritage Minutes

The Heritage Minutes have been recognized for decades as Canada's iconic window to its own history. Historica Canada's website is the stylish home for these famous vignettes, where Canadians go to watch, search and explore stories from Canada's past.

Historica Canada's multimedia offerings go well beyond the Heritage Minutes. With over a dozen video series and a burgeoning podcast library, there are countless ways to explore Canada's culture and history through this stylish, highly functional website, purpose-built from the ground up.

The Organization

Behind the content is a thriving organization, supported by some of Canada's most prominent citizens. The new website elegantly represents Historica Canada itself and its diverse and extensive programs, alongside its rich content.

Daniel has worked on a number of Historica Canada's websites - his commitment to our projects and his professionalism have made him a trusted vendor of ours for more than 15 years. Daniel is an excellent communicator, he listens carefully to his client's needs, and offers measured solutions and advice. I would be very happy to endorse him for work in web design and development.
