Stan Rogers (1949-1983) is considered by many as the greatest songwriter that Canada has ever produced. His music captured the power of the human condition and many of his songs have become part of the Canadian folk repertoire.

Although he's no longer with us, his legacy continues to entertain, educate, and celebrate the Canadian experience in its raw and most honest forms.



RIP Stan!

A surveyor, engineer, and the inventor of standard time zones. and one of the foremost railway engineers of his time. He was in charge of the initial survey for the Canadian Pacific Railway, the first Canadian railway to span the continent.

He was knighted in 1897 on the occasion of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.
