Point Pelee National Park

June, 2021

Point Pelee is the southernmost point of mainland Canada, and is located on a foundation of glacial sand, silt and gravel that bites into Lake Erie. This spit of land is slightly more than seven kilometres long by 4.5 kilometres (2.8 mi) wide at its northern base.

Established in 1918, Point Pelee was the first national park in Canada to be established for conservation.
