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.
This exhibition is sponsored by Canadian Heritage, through the Museums Assistance Program.
Admission prices vary, depending on age. (4 and Under $0.00, ages 5-12 $5.00, ages 13-17 and 60+ $8.00, ages 18-59 $10.00)
