Located in the middle of the St. Lawrence River, Grosse Île was a quarantine station for the Port of Québec from 1832 to 1937. At the time, the island was the main point of entry for immigrants coming to Canada. You will be moved by the story of Grosse Île, a witness to both human tragedy and exceptional dedication. Relive the troubling experience of immigrants who set sail in hopes of a better future, and of those who cared for them upon arrival. 2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation. As a gift, Canada will offer free admission throughout the Parks Canada network on presentation of the National Discovery Passes, available at parkscanada.gc.ca. Fees apply for transportation to the island. Contact us for details.
