The Language Ambassador Program is an amazing opportunity to connect with Canadians from non-official language communities and showcase HMCS Haida National Historic Site. Since 2017, Parks Canada, in collaboration with Mohawk College, has delivered Language Day programing. These Language Days provide an opportunity for a wider range of communities to learn about Canadian history in their native language while visiting HMCS Haida - the Royal Canadian Navy's "most fightingest ship"!

On these special days, Language Ambassadors from Mohawk College welcome visitors and help share some of the historic site’s amazing stories in several different languages. The volunteers are available to tour visitors aboard one of the most famous ships in the history of Canada.

Come visit us on Language Days and:

  • Feel welcome in your own language at one of the most fascinating historic sites Parks Canada has to offer!
  • Learn about our shared history in your first language!
  • Get connected to your community and share with them your wonderful experience at HMCS Haida!
