All Parks Canada facilities are temporarily closed, all visitor services and all motor vehicle access by visitors are suspended until further notice.

Parks Canada is calling on Canadians to support the national effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 and stay home.

Port au Choix National Historic Site

The health and safety of Canadians, visitors, and Parks Canada team members is of the utmost importance to the Agency. Parks Canada is doing its part to contain the novel coronavirus and reduce risks to employees and visitors. We look forward to resuming normal operations, but for now we must all work together to limit the spread of COVID-19.

On Thursday, March 19, 2020, Parks Canada temporarily suspended all visitor services in all national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas across the country until further notice. Effective 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, the Agency will temporarily suspend all motor vehicle access by visitors in order to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

Access to parking lots, visitor facilities and trails at the Port au Choix National Historic Site will be temporarily suspended. 

Commercial fish harvesters who require access for the operation of their enterprise can continue, but all users are asked to follow the advice of public health experts on social distancing.
