School History

Sir Wilfrid Laurier, (1841– 1919) was the seventh Prime Minister of Canada (1896 – 1911). His portrait is displayed on the Canadian five-dollar bill. Laurier was Canada's first francophone Prime Minister and the fourth longest serving Prime Minister of Canada. His nearly 45 years of service in the House of Commons is a record in Canadian politics, unmatched by any other politician.
