NOTE: During the Covid 19 crisis, we realized that some of our “Lessons Learned” can’t be used at this time, but they will come in handy, once the crisis has passed. Please stay safe!
Ontario Visited is dedicated to discovering and exploring Ontario Communities, their events and their residents.
Our DISCOVER ONTARIO video series takes visitors along with us as we learn more about the communities and events we experience. Each video and post include an “interesting” fact about the community or event we visited. See if you can guess the right answer!
This month’s video features Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre. The Heritage Centre is located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario and “preserves and tells the story of Canada’s bushplane and forest fire protection heritage and how it has shaped life in northern and remote part of Canada.”
Our trip to the beautiful city of Sault Ste. Marie had to include a visit to the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre! This is a wonderful museum, that explains Canada’s northern history in dramatic style. The amazing aircraft on display and their stories, allowed us to image the challenges needed to open the north!
