Kensington Market Featured in New Heritage Minute

First Animated Heritage Minute

Anyone who grew up in the 90s remembers Heritage Minutes as an important part of our upbringing. Sure they were a bit campy, but they taught us small, yet important pieces of our Canadian history in short, one-minute clips at a time.

Whether it was the story of Terry Fox’s incredible journey, or how sports coach James Naismith invented the sport of basketball, everyone has one that sticks in their memory.

This week, a new Heritage Minute was released, their first animated version all about the story of Kensington market in Toronto. The video explains how the neighbourhood was predominantly an immigrant area that grew into a bustling market.
