Canadian Living History Sites
Living history is an activity that incorporates historical tools, activities and dress into an interactive presentation that seeks to give observers and participants a sense of stepping back in time. Although it does not necessarily seek to reenact a specific event in history, living history is similar to, and sometimes incorporates, historical reenactment.
Expanded Description:
There are categories for:
Canadian National Historic Sites (under - history - canadian national historic sites) - only those deemed of Historical Importance within Canada by Parks Canada.

Historic Reenactments (under - entertainment- live performance - historic reenactments)- limited time events (ie. 1 day or 1 week)

This category will be for the ones that slip through the cracks of the categories above (ie. the ones listed below)
