Parks Canada recently unveiled a plaque to commemorate Thunder Bay’s Finnish Labour Temple as a site of national historic significance. Across Canada more than 2000 people, places, and events have been deemed important enough to our national identity and development to have received such designations. 95 percent of these designations were initiated by nominations from the public … people like you and me.
If you are interested in submitting a nomination, the process, criteria, and guidelines for applying for designation are available on Parks Canada’s website.
