"Tales of pioneer hardship and deprivation have been told many times. Yet still we remember in wonder, that people accomplished so much with so little; that men and women with simple tools, their bare hands, and their own inventiveness cleared the land, drained the swamps, made their own clothing and provided their own food. Through all these difficulties God was with them and they wanted their children educated intellectually and spritually." from Norfolk Street United Church history

National Historic Sites of Canada

Prince of Wales Fort - Churchill Manitoba

The National Historic Sites of Canada has designed this website as a way for historians, geographers, and tourists to explore the unique heritage of Canada.

Currently, over 1,500 places, persons, and events have been formally commemorated by the Canadian government. These dedications fall into five broad themes, including Peopling the Land and Governing Canada.

Visitors can use the Explore feature on the site to browse through the register of historic places or learn about ongoing archaeological digs at some of these sites
Within the National Historic Sites section, detailed information on over 160 of the unique sites dotting the landscape from Newfoundland to Yellow Knife can be found. Additionally, visitors can learn more about the nation's historic lighthouses and sites that are under consideration for addition to this impressive list.
