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. Ann�s Academy invites you to follow a free guided tour in order to discover the heart of Victoria�s 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. Ann�s 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! Don�t forget to bring your visiting friends and relatives, and to pass the word around in your English and French-speaking circles.
