MORRISBURG, ONTARIO — As part of the government’s recent move into Step One of its Roadmap to Reopen Ontario plan, St. Lawrence Parks Commission (SLPC) is pleased to announce the opening of its historic site Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg, Ontario on Thursday, June 17th, 2021 with modified programming. To comply with public health measures, advice and restrictions, Upper Canada Village will be offering outdoor walking tours of the Village in Step One.

Beginning on June 17th and running to June 30th, Upper Canada Village invites guests to enjoy the beauty and serenity of its site as a living history museum as a sneak peek before the Village opens fully later in the reopening framework. A 90-minute outdoor guided walking tour will take guests through the Village presenting exciting historic facts and scenic views. Please note that during this time, heritage buildings will be closed and the only interpretation on-site will be the walking tours.

As we embark on a new season, the commitment to welcoming guests back safely remains a top priority. Guests are asked to plan ahead and be prepared. Staff will be relying on the cooperation of all to adhere to physical distancing and onsite guidelines.
