The world’s deadliest influenza pandemic — known as the Spanish Flu — swept across Canada between 1918 and 1919. With no effective vaccine or treatment available, the virus infected Canadians living in cities, towns, and farms. Approximately 55,000 Canadians died; most of the casualties were young adults. This new display examines the lasting impact of the influenza pandemic in Canada — and asks whether we’re prepared for the next one. The display was developed by Canadian Geographic Enterprises, in collaboration with the Museum of Health Care at Kingston.

 

This project has been made possible [in part] by the Government of Canada.

Ce projet a été rendu possible [en partie] grâce au gouvernement du Canada.
