Experience Ontario’s oldest European community and one of Canada’s National Historical Sites. Today, Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons is a living museum that invites visitors to explore the history of the Jesuit mission and the Indigenous peoples who lived in the region at that time.
The site features a reconstructed version of the original fort and mission buildings, including living quarters, a church, workshops, and more.
Experienced re-enactors and historians demonstrate daily life at the mission and the interactions between the Jesuit priests and the Indigenous peoples they sought to convert.
Visitors get a unique opportunity to see the earliest Canadian pioneer life, through guided or self-guided visits, school group tours, interactive education programs, special events, and corporate functions. It offers a range of educational programming for people of all ages, including school programs, summer camps, and cultural events.
The site typically operates on a seasonal schedule, with hours and programming varying by season. Special events, including First Light and National Indigenous Peoples Day, happen all year round.
