Participating in #HISTORICPLACESDAYS

Located in the middle of the St. Lawrence River, Grosse île was a quarantine station for the port of Québec from 1832 to 1937. At the time, the island was the main point of entry for immigrants coming to Canada. You will be moved by the story of Grosse Île, which stands in testament to both human tragedy and exceptional dedication. Relive the troubling experiences of immigrants who set sail in hopes of a better future, and those who cared for them upon arrival.
