  1. WI/AHC: Ukrainian as a co-official language of the Canadian Prairies, post-1867 POD

    Hello everyone, this is my first thread. As I know, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba are home to many peoples from a wide variety of national backgrounds, notably Germans, English, Irish, and Ukrainians, but many and many more. Since the domestic Canadian population was very reluctant to move...
  2. Impact of British Alaska on Canadian Confederation and British Columbia

    In OTL, the USA purchased Alaska from the Russian Empire in 1867. But, what if Britain expressed more interest and was able to purchase it from the Russians? How does this affect the formation of the Canadian Confederation and how is British Columbia in particular affected by this? Do they join...

    Largest possible United States at the time of Independence

    Many Ameriwank scenarios begin with the nascent United States coming out of the American Revolution having won much more land from Great Britain. However, I was wondering which British territories in the Western Hemisphere could have most plausibly been taken by the Americans in the peace...
  4. Camerica and Canzac - Two Anglo Towers of Canada

    What I’m planning to do is work on a timeline where there are two Anglo Canada’s: a us based one which is culturally linked to US Another where there is more commonality with the Anzacs Potential POVs: James Cook doesn’t go to Hawaii after going to the North during third voyage, instead...
  5. Balkanized Canada: More Provinces

    As many people on this site, I've always got a few ideas for TLs or scenarios bouncing around. Canadian history is by no means by only interest, but it may be my area of greatest expertise. I also find the development of modern day Quebecois politics from some old British guarantees to be...

    From gulfs Mexico to Saint Lawrence. The American conquest in 1812 (part 1)

    In this, the PoD is that Tecumseh dies in the battle of Tippecanoe and with him, his confederacy. Because of this when war breaks out in 1812, Isaac Brooks and the Canadian garrison are outnumbered and are defeated by William Hull, leading to a quick occupation of Southern Ontario. The...
  7. Canadian Gaelic

    IOTL Cape Breton, which would become the center of the Gaelic speaking community in Canada, was a separate colony from Nova Scotia briefly from after the ARW until 1820. If it's not reintegrated into Nova Scotia in 1820, it would become a majority Gaelic speaking colony. The addition of a...
  8. Alaska as a Canadian province

    Could Alaska have been purchased by Britain instead of the US, or otherwise integrated into Canada? Were Alaska a Canadian province, how would Canadian and US history be different?
  9. No Forward Pass: Canadian Rugby Football League

    Hey folks, an idea I've toyed with for years, seeing if there is interest in following such a TL or in collaboration. Would cover the entire origins and development of Canadian Rugby/Canadian football, with the major POD being the 1929 season. For those of you who dont know, this is the first...
  10. Why are parts of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago in the Northwest Territories?

    Why are a quarter of Kitlineq (Victoria Island) , half of Illulliq (Melville Island), Banks Island and some minor islands in the Northwest Territories, instead of being in Nunavut like they should logically be? It makes no sense that the border of Nunavut, after extending to about the western...

    DWI: What if New England hadn't succeeded in the War of 1812?
    Threadmarks: DWI

    As we all know, the War of 1812 was a humiliation for America, and after the White House was burnt to the ground by the British, the Hartford Convention declared independence for New England, which distracted the Americans enough for the British to capture the Great Lakes and the Michigan...
  12. Canadian Military Pattern DUKW

    This idea was inspired by David Fletcher's book British Military Transport, 1829-1956, and an interesting point he made regarding the British Army and the DUKW. According to Fletcher, in December 1942 the British Truck Mission in Washington DC gave the Ministry of Supply's requirement for...
  13. DBWI: What if the US had gotten Oregon

    In the early 19th century what is now Columbia was disputed between the British Empire and the United States of America, with both claiming the stretch of land between the 54' and 44' parallels north and delimitated to the east by the Great Continental Divide only for the empire finally assert...

    Threadmarks: A Homecoming

    The loudspeaker broadcast the final boarding call for the ferry. I had been smoking a cigarette and staring out across the harbour, looking at nothing in particular but taking in the sunshine on a nearly cloudless day. The announcement broke my focus, so I grabbed my backpack off the dock, mate...
  15. Collaborative Alternate Canada Contest

    Since the writing challenges disappeared, maybe I can make one of my own. Alternate Canada scenarios where we write scenarios of a what if. Some scenarios can be found at the link below. Or, alternatively, we can flesh out a scenario where the 1837-38 rebellions in Canada actually led to an...
  16. AH Vignette: The Comeback Lady

    Kim Campbell's Upset Victory The exit polls were wrong by a huge scale, from the fact that Kim Campbell had 62 seats and there was to be a Liberal Minority Government with the Bloc being the Opposition, but however, the Progressive Conservatives had 100 seats by the end of the night, the...

    Alternate Sites for GM in Canada?

    Thanks to Robert Durant's relationship with Sam McLaughlin events, through several twists and turns, saw the Oshawa based McLaughlin Motor Car Company becoming a part of GM and renamed General Motors of Canada. The original plants were much nearer the centre of town diagonally opposite from each...
  18. DBAHC: More successful Canada, less successful Mexico

    Canada and Mexico are, in many ways, a study in contrasts. The former is infamous for seemingly being a "perpetual developing country", whereas the latter is known as an overall quite successful country despite a rough start (it does have some lingering issues, but no country is perfect). Your...
  19. Political Ramifications of No War of 1812

    The War of 1812 is really a small event within world history, being most remembered in the US and (maybe) Canada. As such, it doesn't have too many ramifications for world history, aside for potential Canadian nationalism issues. Yet, an interesting case, in my opinion, to think about, is the...
  20. Alternate United States of America (Union of American States)

    The United States of America An Alternate Timeline Summary (Introduction/Side Note) Hello. Thank you for visiting my new page on what an alternate history of the United States might look like. I tried to incorporate as much realism as possible while still adding enough "action" to make it...
