Laurier House National Historic Site Management Plan
In February 2020 the new management plan for Laurier House National Historic Site was approved by Parks Canada’s Chief Executive Officer. The plan, which replaces the 2007 Management Plan for Laurier House National Historic Site, will guide management decisions for the next 10 years. The plan was developed through public consultation and is based on input from local residents, community organizations, stakeholders, partners, and visitors. Through this management plan, Parks Canada is meeting its promise to protect and present Canada’s cultural heritage while also providing an opportunity for Canadians to discover and connect with Canada’s history.
The new plan for Laurier House National Historic Site outlines objectives based on the following key strategies:
- A site of great relevance to Canadians: This objective seeks to raise awareness of the site through partnering opportunities, and promotes a greater appreciation for the stories of prime ministers Sir Wilfrid Laurier and William Lyon Mackenzie King.
- A place to connect with the different stories of Canada: Laurier House seeks to share stories of Canada, from the various perspectives of those who helped build the country as we know it today.
- Protection of our national treasure: This objective focuses on protection and presentation of the house itself and its valued and authentic collection of historic objects.
