Each generation, something big has happened that changed the course of Canadian history. These stories follow a fictional family that, like you and me, were not movers and shakers in their world. They simply experienced events as they unfolded. Just as no single family can experience all of Canada in its present form, no family can experience all of Canadian history. This is just following one thread through the cloth. 

During this time of physical distancing due to COVID-19, we are making The Family stories available to download for free. The plan was to have a new chapter available each day, in the hopes that this time of separation wouldn't last as long as there are chapters in the series. Sadly, all of the chapters are now up and the seperation continues. Click on the title below to go to the story's page.
