Expansion (1858 to 1899)
Season 1  |  Episode 5  |  The History Channel  |  April 3, 2019

The extraordinary tale of some of the people, places and events that shaped Canada - stories of change makers and rule breakers, dreamers and visionaries, scientists and entrepreneurs who forged a nation in a vast and harsh land. With groundbreaking CGI and a cast of celebrity interviews that take us inside Canada's biggest stories, this series is truly a celebration of a nation that has transformed its differences into understanding and created an identity that is uniquely diverse. This episode, in the lead up to Confederation, Canada faces the threat of American expansionism and a decreased interest by the British in maintaining the colony. In an effort to remain free and independent, Canada also expands its borders. A new generation of risk takers, gold miners, cowboys and railway builders will rise to the challenge. But not everyone is happy with this expansion.
