The entrance to the Diefenbunker: Canada's Cold War Museum

This program uses primary sources from a scenario that took place in 1986, when the Diefenbunker was active. As air-raid sirens blare, students are assigned key roles and tasked with making difficult decisions for Canada. They learn about Canada’s War Measures Act and the role that the different levels of government play in an emergency.
