The Story of Confederation is Back

While Province House is closed and as we lead towards the 150th anniversary of Confederation, Parks Canada and Confederation Centre are committed to telling the story of Province House. This year again, The Story of Confederation program will be back on the historic grounds surrounding Province House and at Confederation Centre of the Arts.

This program offers visitors the opportunity to learn about Province House National Historic Site and the 1864 Charlottetown Conference while Province House is closed for conservation work.

This year, The Story of Confederation features some new programming, including a new Parks Canada Explorers booklet which is always popular with kids, and the return of the popular Confederation Players who make regular Chamber visits throughout their day.

The Parks Canada film ‘A Building of Destiny’, which tells the story of Province House and the Charlottetown Conference, won second place in the Interpretation Canada Awards of Excellence this year. This film may be purchased at The Showcase Gift Shop here at the Centre.
