Niagara 1918

The Flu Pandemic and the Canadian Experience

Welcome to Niagara 1918: The Flu Pandemic and the Canadian Experience. This website is built as a resource for Canadians to place our experiences in the COVID-19 pandemic into a broader historical perspective, by providing narratives and information about the 1918 Flu Pandemic that swept across the country and the world.

This page is researched, written and built by the students of HIST1P50: Co-Operative Historical Projects at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario.

We hope you enjoy learning more about the last great pandemic to strike Canada while you are here. You can navigate between sections of the page using the header menu above or the navigation buttons at the end of each section.

HIST1P50 is grateful to Co-Operative Education and Work Integrated Learning (CEWIL) Canada for its support of this project. We are also indebted to our community partners, the St. Catharines and Welland Canal Museum, The Niagara Falls History Museum, the Lincoln Museum, and the Nelles Manor Museum. Thanks also to the Co-Op Office at Brock University.
