Canada Historic Places Day

Date: July 7, 2020 01:30 pm to July 31, 2020 12:00 am

Canada Historic Places Day marks a summer celebration that profiles and promotes Canada’s historic places from coast to coast to coast.

This year, while the doors of many historic places are shut, we are encouraging Canadians to connect with their country’s diverse heritage online.

Running for the first time #AllSummerLong, our virtual festivities are set to kick off on July 4th and will continue through until the end of August.

Thanks to this extended schedule, Canadians will have even more opportunity to get involved and stay engaged!

Hundreds of historic places will participate this year enjoying the benefits of a national advertising campaign.

#HistoricPlacesDay is all about increasing visitation to historic places, virtual and otherwise.

Not only does it enrich the lives of visitors young and old, it opens the door to discovering new places.

Central BC Railway and Forestry Museum is participating in the summer celebration following Canada Historic Places Day.
