Real Life Stories
Start date: 1 January, 2014

The Real Life Stories Project was created as a special project as a founding partner of Canada's Untold Stories Project, WI Members in Ontario were invited to submit a story - about any time of their life (youth, marriage, etc.) or their full life stories up to 1,500 words. About 350 stories were received by the deadline of April 30, 2015. As of July 2015, the committee is starting to review the stories with the desire to publish the stories (via paper and electronically) for Canada's 150th.
Nature of the Project Reach
The stories will be available for all people in Ontario, Canada, and beyond to enjoy.
To encourage members to become involved with Canada 150. To leave a legacy for Canada - As most members live in rural Ontario, stories are being captured on everyday life of the last century, including immigration, humorous, and inspirational stories.
Project Needs: Funding to publish the stories, editors and other help to publish the stories.
