Fort St. Joseph National Historic Site of Canada

Learning Experiences

Fort St. Joseph National Historic Site of Canada offers a wide variety of curriculum-based education programs for children of all ages with strong links to Ontario's Sociology, Anthropology/Archaeology and History Curriculum.

When it was begun in 1796, Fort St. Joseph was the most westerly frontier outpost in British North America. It was at the end of the defence line, which the British had built across their Canadian Colonies to protect them from American attack and to stake claim to the territory north of the Great Lakes. In the words of one soldier sent there, it was 'the Military Siberia of Upper Canada'.

To learn more about the site's education programs please refer to the curriculum link for each program.

Location: Fort St. Joseph is located at the southern tip of St. Joseph Island, 75 km south east of Sault Ste. Marie
