Canada Historic Places Day – July 8, 2017

Enter History Here  on July 8, 2017!

Historic places tell stories that bring Canada to life. Beyond what’s in books, these places are where you can immerse yourself in the stories of our country. You will discover stories of triumph and loss, of progress and great achievement. But, also uncover great Canadian experiences.

With over 12,000 historic places across the country, start exploring and join this national celebration. Chances are there’s one near you.  Visit a place and enter history here.

Get out there!

But first, take a selfie (for a chance to win cash)! Take a picture of yourself at a historic place on July 8. Share your story on Instagram using the hashtag #HISTORICPLACESDAY for your chance to win $1,500. Contest details

Without these places, there would be no Canada Historic Places Day! If you own or operate a historic place, register your site to be listed as an official participant on our website. You’ll gain national exposure and, did we mention you’ll have a chance to win $1,000? Please register here.

This project is made possible in part with support from Parks Canada Agency.
