Spread across three provinces – starting in Manitoba, across Saskatchewan, into Alberta, the “stories” of 1885 are told to visitors from around the world. We encourage you to read the history at each individual location on this site, view the pictures and we look forward to presenting Trails of 1885 peoples, stories, history and culture.
Although there have been calls to pardon or even completely exonerate Louis Riel, who was hanged for his role in the 1885 Northwest Rebellion, some Métis feel that it's not the best way to honour their leader.
Want to experience the outdoors in true Saskatchewan fashion but not sure where to start? Sign up for Learn-to Camp with Parks Canada and you'll learn how to set up a tent, cook outdoors and leave no trace at your campsite. Plus, you'll get to enjoy Saskatchewan's amazing natural places with family and friends!
