Lighthouse Stories

See what’s in the April 2023 issue of Kayak: Canada’s History Magazine for Kids.

Posted March 22, 2023

All over Canada, lighthouses stand as guides. For centuries, they have warned ships of danger and steered them to safety.

Explore how their signals have changed and imagine the life of a lighthouse keeper. That life often included helping and even rescuing sailors in trouble, as in our comic.

You’ll also find out where to visit lighthouses (Surprise! They’re even in Ottawa and Saskatchewan!) and think about how the ships that lighthouses guided, with their loads of furs and timber going out and thousands of migrants arriving, have changed Canada.
