Canada Historic Places Day a chance to experience Indigenous culture

This year for Canada Historic Places Day Canadians could visit historic places with Indigenous learning experiences. These sites can be found from coast to coast to coast, from small rural landmark locations on the east coast to large urban centres with hundreds of thousands of visitors in the west. These are just a few examples of Parks Canada’s historic sites with connections to Indigenous communities. Some of these sites may currently be only accessible virtually, so I encourage you to check the sites out on Google maps and the Parks Canada website to learn more.
