On May 13, 2016, a report by journalist Frédéric Pépin presented to Téléjournal Ontariotells us that the Kingston penitentiary will have a new vocation.
The Correctional Service Canada, owner of the penitentiary, in collaboration with the St. Lawrence Parks Commission, has decided to open the doors of the penitentiary Kingston to tourists.
As soon as it closed, the authorities tried the experiment and discovered that there was great public interest in the ;exploring these places.
In 2023, the period during which one can explore the former maximum security prison ends on November 26.
This is most likely a visit that will leave a strong impression on tourists who enter what many call the Alcatraz of the north.
