Culture and history

Forillon National Park

The Mi'gmaq and their ancestors have frequented the rich territory of Forillon for thousands of years. From the 18th century onwards, the cultural landscape of Forillon took another turn with the arrival of ambitious cod merchants. Anglo-Norman, Irish, Scottish, French-Canadian and American families, among others, settled here to take part in this lucrative activity. Today, visitors who discover Forillon's cultural landscape relive this quest for harmony between humans, land and sea.
