Friends of the Fort and Canal
The Friends of the Fort and Canal is a not-for-profit incorporated Cooperating Association. In June 2011, the Friends of the Sault Ste. Marie Canal was revived, the original cooperating association had been active for a number of years and dormant for nine years. The new Friends of the Fort and Canal are committed to enhancing and complementing Parks Canada’s interpretive, educational and research programs at Fort St. Joseph National Historic Site and Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site. The Friends and Parks Canada look forward to developing and implementing programs which encourage community involvement and public awareness, understanding and appreciation of both sites’ historical importance to the Algoma region.
