About 150 Stories

150 Stories is a collection of unique stories, released once a week for 150 weeks, that celebrate and promote Canadian values. 

The Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF) has launched 150 Stories as part the Our Canada project  – a three-year initiative to heighten awareness, understanding and respect for Canadian values and traditions. 150 Stories is a celebration of Canada's Sesquicentennial in 2017.

Pitch your idea or story

Do you know a remarkable Canadian or Canadian organization or initiative? Is there a Canadian moment in history that you would like to share? The CRRF wants to publish stories about Canadian values and traditions, such as: democracy, respect of human rights and freedom, multiculturalism, equity, bilingualism, compassion, civility and loyalty. To learn more, read the Our Canada Report on Canadian Values.

Stories should be carefully researched, include a resource list, and be between between 450 and 750 words in length. We are publishing until December 31, 2017.
