    Administrative history

    The Commission on Canadian Studies was established in 1972 by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC). As stated in the introduction of "To Know Ourselves" (the Commission's report), the Commission: "was prompted by the growing interest in Canadian Studies at Canadian Universities...the Commission intended to assist the discussion and to further the development of studies related to Canada by providing accurate information about the present state of teaching and research in this area, and by directing attention to the possibilities of and needs for new programmes in the future." The Commission was to study, report and make recommendations about the state of teaching and research relating to Canadian Studies. The Commission defined Canadian Studies teaching or research in any field that promoted knowledge about Canada. The accomplishments of the Commission were extensive. Through public hearings, submitted briefs, surveys, questionnaires, meetings with representatives from educational institutions, government agencies, professional and academic societies, the Commission prompted considerable response. T.H.B. Symons was Chairman of the Commission.
