Canso Islands National Historic Site of Canada

Canso Islands National Historic Site of Canada
Welcome to Canso Islands and Grassy Island Fort National Historic Sites of Canada.  One of the early European fishing ports in North America, Canso grew to be a thriving community of fishermen and merchants from New England.  Now you can discover the fascinating story of the people who lived here more than 200 years ago, before it became a casualty of the Anglo-French rivalry for North America. Free boat service to the island is available from the Visitor Centre on the mainland.
