Welcome to the Canadian Network on Humanitarian History

We are a multidisciplinary network interested in the history of humanitarian and development aid, NGOs, and the archives that preserve the histories of organizations and institutions related to this history. We encourage anyone with an interest in this history to join our network, whether you are a student, academic, professional, retired professional, or archivist. We are an affiliated committee of the Canadian Historical Association/Société historique du Canada.
