Canada History Week 2020: Canada’s first and only mixed World Heritage Site
In the Anishinaabemowin language, Pimachiowin Aki means “the Land that Gives Life.”
In 2002, four Anishinaabe Nations signed an accord to protect their culture and ancestral lands. Pimachiowin Aki is Canada’s first and only mixed (natural and cultural) UNESCO World Heritage Site. Established in 2018, Pimachiowin Aki covers almost 30,000 km² of boreal forest in Ontario and Manitoba.
