What to know before you visit

As announced in 2015, Parks Canada will be investing three billion dollars over five years towards restoring the infrastructure of national historic sites, national parks and national marine conservation areas of Canada.

This historic investment supports conservation while promoting visitor experience and making our infrastructure safer and more appealing to visitors.

When visiting Fort Lennox National Historic Site, you may encounter one or more construction zones or reduced services while we complete this important work. Please plan ahead before you travel to avoid inconvenience.
