The Parks Canada team regularly participates in events to share its knowledge about the historical expedition of Sir John Franklin and to present its archaeological missions deep into the Canadian Arctic.

In addition, we have many contributing partners who help to share the Franklin story. We are happy to announce their events here as well.
