Shine a spotlight on your favourite historic places and win prizes during Canada Historic Places Day #AllSummerLong

This year, we’ve created a way for individual Canadians and historic places to keep the fun of visiting and exploring alive, and win great prizes in the process! A #VisitList will feature Canada’s most intriguing buildings, sites and landscapes as chosen by you.

Where would you like to visit next?  

Bring your travel daydreams one step closer to reality by creating your own #VisitList. Plan out and personalize the journey you are hoping to take, including historic places you find intriguing or that already mean the most to you! Share your #VisitList with family and friends, and continue to add to it as you discover more amazing stories from sites across the country.

Where would you return to?

Have you already put some miles on your feet, your bicycle or your car visiting historic places in Canada? Share your experiences with others through your own #VisitList. Document your adventure to inspire others to retrace your steps IRL someday soon!

Prizes to be won! From August 1st until August 31st, you can create and post your #VisitList online for a chance to win one of four $250 cash prizes! It’s simple and easy to do with only a few short steps. To enter, set up an account on, create a VisitList which includes a minimum of three sites shown on the website, welcome online travellers to check out your itinerary by writing an introduction of at least 100 words, and give your VisitList an amazing title.

Participating places can win too! Every registered site included in a VisitList earns a chance to win a grand prize valued at $5000. This prize pack will include marketing consulting, photography, and virtual reality tour development services. Each time a participating historic place is added to a VisitList, its chance of winning the randomly-drawn grand prize will increase by one – that means you can help give your favourite historic place a boost!
