The Pointe-Mitis Lighthouse is now managed both to provide access to the general public to its magnificent historical and natural ambiance and to serve as base for educational, cultural and scientific endeavors.


The first lighthouse was built in 1874 and then replaced in 1909 by the present structure.  The Foghorn Building was built 10 years later. Automated in 1972, the lighthouse ceased serving as an aide to navigation in 1999.


The site is open daily to visitors, but access to the site is limited to pedestrians or cyclists (a parking area is available 1 km away).



This site has been neglected for decades, and contributions of money and time are urgently needed.


Your purchases will help support our efforts and gives you something in return.



We have created a page on this website to gather photographs and stories from the last 150 years, which, we hope, will contribute to the conservation of this historic building.
