The Our Stories project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada
and the Roadmap for Canada’s Official Languages 2013-2018: Education, Immigration, Communities.
Our Stories: The Eastern Townships Chapter in Canada’s 150-year story focuses on the influence and role that Townshippers – the English-speaking community of Quebec’s historical Eastern Townships – have had on the fabric of Canada. Through various genres and mediums, 25 contributors examine the nuances of this community’s experiences, its characters, its contributions and its spirit.
The Our Stories project was launched in 2016 by Townshippers’ Association to mark Canada’s 150th-anniversary celebrations. This book laces together some of the many stories from the Townships past and offers a glimpse of the perspectives of today.
