Fundamentally, Grosse Île and the Irish Memorial National Historic Site will be developed in accordance with the statement of commemorative intent worked out for this site. To achieve that objective, links will be established between the resources symbolizing its national historic significance and the messages used to convey this. Accordingly, three fundamental principles underlie the preservation and presentation concept, which has been designed to ensure the commemorative integrity of the site.
