This discussion looked at the history of PR in terms of what is currently taught in PR programs in Canada, which is primarily American-based, what we know about Canadian PR history, what tools are available for educators and the importance of introducing Canadian PR students and practitioners to our own history. Dr. Amy Thurlow PhD, APR, public relations educator at Mount Saint Vincent University and Dr. Anthony Yue, PhD, EMBA, Assistant Professor at Mount Saint Vincent University will present their findings from recent research on the history of PR in Canada. Where do we stand in the classroom when it comes to Canada's PR history?
