Brûlé-Wendat Expedition 2015

Message from the Toronto Historical Society/La Société d’histoire de Toronto

This year, Ontario is commemorating the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the French in our province. The Toronto Historical Society is planning a re-enactement of a local route taken by the Voyageurs around the year 1615. The event will take place in mid-September just outside of Toronto.

We’re currently putting together a team of 12 people interested in joining us for a canoe trip and long distance walk. Overnight accommodations and reimbursement of food expenses are available. For more details people can view a presentation on our website: .

The expedition will take place between Orillia and Toronto with rest stops along the way. There will be a ceremony involving the New Credit First Nation, a plaque unveiling as well as the official opening of a French Language school during that weekend. If anyone is interested in participating we would love to have you join us! Please contact our President, Christian Bode at and mention the Brulé-Wendat Expedition 2015 in the subject line.
