The NCC is renaming the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway. As part of this initiative, we are looking for your memories about the parkway and the surrounding area.

Come share your stories with us and with the community and learn more about the Indigenous naming exercise currently underway.

Your stories will be featured in a summary report. They may also inform a future interpretation plan for the area, including the parkway and the riverfront park.
