This article examines the ways in which history has been combined with citizenship education in Quebec's new high school curricula in world and Quebec/Canadian history to create a new subject, history and education for citizenship, in which every unit of study is assigned a distinct 'citizenship objective'. The article examines the conception of citizenship on which Quebec's new curriculum is based, its educational goals, the specification of objectives, the approach taken to history and overall programme design.
