The mission of CGVRI is to offer in-depth courses that will expand students' understanding of Canada, its history, geography, immigrants and settlers, and will further develop their knowledge and skills of researching their family history in Canada. This will be achieved through the use of virtual presentations, in-class discussions and activities. Some courses may include optional homework and projects.
Two concurrent courses of eighteen (18) classes each are being offered for the week of July 18 -23, 2021.
Classes are 75 minutes in length. There are four classes per day, Monday through Thursday. Two classes on Friday.
