Management Plan

Comprehensive and specific view of history

  • Grosse Île should be presented both in its overall context – that is, in relation to the history of immigration to Canada – and more specifically – that is, as a quarantine station and as the scene of the tragic events of 1847.
  • Whatever the forms or methods of communication used, the public will have the opportunity to learn about all the historical messages embodying the site’s commemorative intent.
