History

The Canadian Slovenian Historical Society (CSHS) is an independent society formed in 2002 to coordinate, research, record and preserve the history of Slovenians in Canada. The historical evidence of Slovenians and their contributions to Canada are stored in the CSHS Archives. Thousands of archival records including letters, documents, photographs, artifacts, postcards, books, tapes, vinyl records and oral histories are carefully preserved, following established archival practices and principles.

Geographical and cultural context

The preservation of Canadian-Slovenian history ensures that Slovenians who settled in Canada are not forgotten by future generations. The ongoing task of sorting and cataloguing by the CSHS ensures that descendants, students, scholars and historians have a resource to consult about ancestors and Slovenian communities across the country.
