The Sir George-Étienne Cartier National Historic Site of Canada is the restored former residence of this important figure in Canadian history, one of the Fathers of Confederation.
Summer Season 2020
Parks Canada has made the difficult decision to keep the Sir-George-Étienne-Cartier National Historic Site closed for the 2020 Summer season.
After having reviewed public health safety recommendations, our agency's approach toward it, and the environment of the site, we have concluded that the Sir-George-Étienne-Cartier National Historic Site does not allow for easy public access while still respecting adequate physical distancing guidelines. The tour that visitors undergo takes them through enclosed spaces where guides give explanations on the use of different items throughout the house.
For these reasons, and because the health and safety of Canadians, visitors, and team members is of the utmost importance to the agency, Parks Canada has decided not to open the site this season.
