Dear Canadians is a bilingual national platform founded by a team of youth, ages 19 to 22, with the aim of commemorating every Canadian’s unique experience of these times.
Visitors to DearCanadians.ca/ChersCanadiens.ca can share a meaningful photograph on one side of a “digital postcard” and, on the reverse side, express their thoughts and feelings about anything that is on their minds, from reflections and observations, to words of gratitude for specific groups or individuals. Visitors can also read what others have shared, with each postcard destined to become part of Historica Canada’s national Canada During COVID archive — hosted on The Canadian Encyclopedia for future generations to explore. To amplify participants’ impact, for every card posted TELUS will donate $1 to support COVID-19 relief for vulnerable communities and youth across Canada through the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation (up to $10,000). The project will end on November 30.
