The East Gate Registration Complex NHSC contributes to Canada’s national program of historical commemoration that fosters knowledge and appreciation of Canada’s past. The Parks Canada Agency, on the advice of the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada, commemorates nationally significant people, places or events. More than 900 nationally significant places have been designated as national historic sites, 149 of which are administered directly by Parks Canada. One of the entry points to RMNPC, the East Gate Registration Complex NHSC, was built in 1933-34 and was recommended for designation by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada in 1992 with the unveiling of a plaque in 1995. The East Gate NHSC is the only original park entrance from the early 1930s remaining in any of Canada’s national parks and remains a place where visitors can learn about the log design, the government’s work program during the Depression, and tourism development.
