The world’s deadliest influenza pandemic — known as the Spanish Flu — swept across Canada between 1918 and 1919. With no effective vaccine or treatment available, the virus infected Canadians living in cities, towns, and farms. Approximately 55,000 Canadians died; most of the casualties were young adults.
This display examines the lasting impact of the influenza pandemic in Canada — and asks whether we’re prepared for the next one. The display was developed by Canadian Geographic Enterprises, in collaboration with the Museum of Health Care at Kingston.
