Ontario History Quest

Ontario History Quest - Exhibit Poster

About the Exhibit

This exhibition features materials from the Toronto Reference Library, The Archives of Ontario and the City of Toronto Archives. Ontario's history is brought to life through the eyes of a new settler to Upper Canada, a working child at the turn of the century, and a 1950s family.

The Ontario History Quest website is no longer available.

Designed for students and teachers, OHQ provided classroom-ready resources on Ontario's history that met the Ministry of Education's current curriculum requirements. It also provided searchable databases of digital images of books, ephemera, manuscripts, maps and pictures on a linked website.

A partnership of the Archives of Ontario, the City of Toronto Archives and the Toronto Public Library developed the OHQ. The Ontario Ministry of Culture provided part of the funding.
