Connections to the Manitoba Curriculum
The Manitoba Social Studies curriculum supports the continued development of the multicultural, multiracial, and pluralistic democracy that is Canada. The events that take place in our classrooms shape, and are shaped by, larger social currents that define who we are and where we are headed as a society. To be successful, schools in general, and social studies classrooms in particular, must be guided by democratic social goals and values that affirm our human diversity and dignity, and that demonstrate a quest for greater equity in our institutions and in society as a whole.
There are specific grade levels and elements of the Manitoba Social Studies curriculum that are particularly relevant to the Holodomor, the history of Ukraine, and the history of Ukrainian-Canadians. These are:
- Grade 6 – Canada: A Country of Change: LE 1.5 Immigration

Grade 12: Global Issues: Sustainability and Citizenship
Development of this course continues. Human rights will receive significant emphasis in this optional course.
“The overall purpose of this study is not to instil fear in the next generation, nor to make students feel guilty for problems which are the cumulative legacy of many generations of mistakes, recklessness, and, in some cases, deliberate neglect or exploitation. Rather, the intent is to help students understand that human societies and institutions can and should be renewed, beginning with matters of personal
lifestyle, and extending through to collective, large-scale social change. The role of education in this change is vital, hence the importance of this course both as an instrument of critical understanding – seeking the truth – and as an instrument of hope – seeking to create a better future.” http://www.edu.gov.mb.ca/k12/cur/socstud/global_issues/course_rationale.pdf
