A true piece of Canadian history

A true piece of Canadian history that is rarely mentioned. [...] It was a gray and rainy day that really set the mood as we were greeted by staff of the island. Amazing.

In a few words

Accompanied by a Parks Canada guide, walk in the footsteps of the tens of thousands of immigrants who arrived at the quarantine station between 1832 and 1937 in the hopes of a better future.

Once an important gateway into Canada, Grosse Île is an enchanting site located in the heart of St. Lawrence River.

Dive into the lives of villagers, workers, and immigrants and encounter moving stories and inspiring landscapes.

The adventure begins in Berthier-sur-Mer (35 minutes from Québec City) where the ferry departs for Grosse Île. Air transportation is also available from Montmagny (45 minutes from Québec City).
