Creator(s): Musée maritime du Québec

Discover the harsh reality experienced by the most famous French-Canadian explorer of the Canadian Arctic. Captain Joseph-Elzear Bernier was one of the foremost seafarers in Canadian history; his exploration of the Arctic Archipelago set the scene for Canadian sovereignty. Captain Bernier and his formidable crew embraced the teachings of the hardy Inuit and managed to explore some of the most hazardous geography in the world. Take a moment and be awestruck by the singular strength that the explorers of the early twentieth century required.

Equipped with audio narration, photos and fascinating journal entries right from the minds of the explorers, Ilititaa will show you a profound glimpse of Canadian history.
