Where can you go in Canada to see Prickly Pear Cactus, fields of vineyards, a Blue Racer, 20,000 pheasants, native Coffee Trees, a 170 year old lighthouse, flat alvar landscapes, and buildings that whisper the history or an era of hand-quarried limestone, steamships, iceboats, saw mills and pump houses?
One place. One Island. Pelee Island.

The Heritage Centre is sustained by the generosity of its supporters.
Donations in several categories are welcome.
If you would like to make a donation to the Pelee Island Heritage Centre please contact us anytime.
This past fall the Heritage Centre began a much needed major renovation to the exterior of our building. We are fortunate to have received a Canada 150 Federal grant to help with this huge project. This fall also saw the installation of two new heat pumps (although just the units were installed with final hook ups in spring). We are also very fortunate to have received a Community Cultural Spaces Federal grant that will assist in financing this project. Both projects will greatly benefit the museum as now it will be climate controlled preserving the artifacts so that future generations will be able to learn about our natural and human history!
These two grants are matching grants which means we must fund 50% of both projects. Special events in 2018 are in the making so stay tuned!!
All donations count and charitable tax receipts will be issued (minimum for receipt is $10.00 but any amount is welcome).
Thank you very much for your support!
