The St. Lawrence River was central to both the emergence and transformation of Canada. Retrace this river’s historic path with the exhibition Moving with the River from June 21, 2013 to March 23, 2014. 

Birthplace of the first colonies and passageway to the Great Lakes and the Canadian West for millions of immigrants, the St. Lawrence River played a fundamental role in the building and settling of Canada.The exhibition retraces the river’s historic path with the Iroquois' thousand-year presence on the land, Franco-Aboriginal alliances, growth of a French settlement in the St. Lawrence Valley and multiethnic European immigration for which Québec served as a gateway.

An exhibition developed by Parks Canada and presented in collaboration with the Canadian Museum of Civilization.
