TV shows filmed at historic places across Canada

The film and television industry love using historic places as part of their sets for their cinematic creations because historic places tell stories, and they create a nostalgic backdrop for modern stories.   

Next time you watch your favourite shows, you might just catch a glimpse of a quaint historic fishing village in Nova Scotia or spy a mid-19th century pioneer village nestled in Toronto, Ontario.  

 Whether you’re a Netflix-lover or heritage enthusiast, check out these five historic places to tour the sets of some history-making tv shows filmed across Canada.
