The health and safety of visitors, employees and all Canadians is of the utmost importance to Parks Canada and Vintage Hotels. We are following the advice and guidance of public health experts in the resumption of activities and continue to make every effort to limit the spread of COVID-19.

We would like to inform our visitors that the Vintage-Parks Canada ice rink will not be operating during the 2020-21 winter season. These actions are intended to respect the advice of public health experts to avoid large public gatherings.

Fort George National Historic Site will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 12 pm to 4 pm until January 3rd, 2020. In addition, on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays the fort will offer private guided tours of no more than nine participants, by reservation only.

Visitors can access the following services and facilities on weekends only from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm:

  • Visitor Centre and gift shop;
  • Most heritage buildings;
  • Public washrooms;
  • Historic grounds.

Visitors should not expect the kind of experience that they have had in the past. Parks Canada is adapting to the COVID-19 situation and visitor access and services will be limited.
