Sundays at 1 pm in French Sundays at 2:30 pm in English

Did you know that 60% of the population of Fort Victoria was French-speaking? The arrival of a wave of American miners during the gold rush of 1858 changed all that. This summer, from July 22 to September 9, the Society of Friends of St. Annís Academy invites you to follow a free guided tour in order to discover the heart of Victoriaís Francophone past.

These tours are offered in English as well as in French and take place on Sundays. Meet us in front of the entrance staircase of St. Annís Academy.

Departures at 1 pm on for French tours - 2:30 pm for English tours. The tour lasts approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. For more information, contact call 250-953-8820 or email [email protected] The tours are led outdoors in the Humboldt Valley neighbourhood.

We hope to see many of you there! Donít forget to bring your visiting friends and relatives, and to pass the word around in your English and French-speaking circles.
