Canadian & World Studies


The Canadian, World Studies, and Social Sciences curriculum will enable students to become informed, purposeful, and active citizens within the diverse communities to which they belong. Students will develop the skills they need to solve problems and communicate ideas and decisions about significant developments, events, and issues. By exploring a variety of social structures, institutions, and relationships, students will be able to bring a broader perspective, integrate useful knowledge, and apply critical-thinking skills to other disciplines and areas of study.


Through the Canadian, World Studies, and Social Sciences curriculum, students realize the vision for the program as they:

  • develop the ability to use the “concepts of disciplinary thinking” to investigate issues, events, and developments
  • develop the ability to determine and apply appropriate criteria to evaluate information and evidence and to make judgements
  • develop skills and personal attributes that are needed for discipline-specific inquiry and that can be transferred to other areas in life
  • build collaborative and cooperative working relationships
  • develop a sense of responsibility with respect to the environment and of the importance of making morally and ethically responsible decisions.
  • use appropriate technology as a tool to help them gather and analyse information, solve problems, and communicate
