What we do
The CHA pursues a number of academic and professional activities for the benefit of its members; it sponsors a vast array of publications and represents the interests of historians and the heritage community by actively lobbying archives, museums, governments and granting agencies on issues relating to copyright, access to information, academic freedom and public access to historical documents.
Each year, the CHA meets in conjunction with the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. During the three-day meeting, historians, teachers and students have an opportunity to showcase their research and discuss issues relating to the discipline.
The CHA has a number of affiliated committees that represent historians involved in specialized areas of historical inquiry.
