Upper Canada Village
We missed you! It is with great excitement that we announce the partial reopening of Upper Canada Village on Wednesday, July 1st, 2020. We have been waiting with open arms to welcome you back!
As things return to some sense of normalcy, we will continue to bring history to life so that we may learn from our past. Nothing has been able to stop us from dreaming about our visitors, your anticipation and your smiles! The peacefulness that always exists within the Village awaits.
While there will be changes to our programming, we will be offering Guided Tours as part of our phased reopening.
This will be a time-ticketed experience. Tickets will be available online at www.UpperCanadaVillage.com or via phone by time slot to ensure the ability to maintain physical distancing. Maps will also be available for download on our website.
Keep in mind that your upcoming visit will be different than in past seasons. So plan ahead and be prepared.
Mandatory Masking in Indoor Public Spaces
As of today, July 7, 2020, all visitors to Upper Canada Village will be required to wear a face covering or mask when entering any of our indoor spaces. This includes buildings within the Village, Village Store, Discovery Centre and washrooms. This is an added measure to the existing safety measures in place at the Village.
The Eastern Ontario Health Unit has implemented a mandatory mask directive across Eastern Ontario for all public and commercial indoor spaces under the province’s Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act.
