July 9 to September 8, 2019
Join us this summer on Parliament Hill as key figures, events and achievements from Canadian history are brought to life against the backdrop of the Centre Block and Peace Tower. It's free!
Northern Lights Show is a free bilingual show presented nightly from July 9 to September 8, 2019. Show times: in July at 10:00 p.m., in August at 9:30 p.m., and in September at 9:00 p.m. The show lasts about 30 minutes.
This experience of sound and light is a thrilling thematic journey through Canada's history. Combining bold digital technology with the architectural splendour of the Parliament Buildings, the show illuminates Canadian stories of nation-building, partnership, discovery, valour, pride and vision at the heart of our country.
Northern Lights has been a huge success! Since its debut in 2015, more than one million spectators have enjoyed the sound and light experience on Parliament Hill.
Audiences have been captivated by sound and light shows on Parliament Hill for more than 30 years.
Northern Lights is the 5th edition of the Sound and Light Show on Parliament Hill.
Key figures, events and achievements from Canadian history are brought to life using five distinct artistic styles. All are presented in spectacular detail, with stirring narration and an original score, against the backdrop of the Centre Block and Peace Tower.
The narrative unfolds through five thematic "books":
Book One: Foundations of the Nation.
A fluid ink-in-water style is used to paint stories of how people from all over the world have expanded our foundations. From traditional indigenous ways of life and early European settlements to modern citizenship ceremonies, these stories are linked by our desire to call Canada "home".
Book Two: Strength in Partnership.
Partnership and determination have made Canada strong. Using an illustration style inspired by classical paintings, this book explores alliances that have shaped our country.
Book Three: Discovery and Adventure.
A lithographic style takes us on a voyage showcasing the achievements of explorers, scientists and innovators whose quests into the unknown continue to inspire us to follow our dreams.
Book Four: Valour.
This powerful book combines dramatic performances with archival materials and charcoal drawings to honour the men and women who have served their country, both at home and abroad, in military conflicts since the First World War.
Book Five: Pride and Vision.
Inspired by the stained glass windows of the Memorial Chamber in the Peace Tower, this intensely colourful book celebrates the natural grandeur of our country and the diversity of her people.
What kind of technology is required to turn the Centre Block on Parliament Hill into a screen more than 143 metres (470 feet) long and 30 storeys high?
Seventeen different projectors work together to form a seamless image on the front façade of Centre Block, creating a fully immersive high definition visual experience.
During Northern Lights, the Centre Block façade is flooded with light by more than 150 moving and static lighting fixtures. These include 50 automated lights, some of which can produce more than 16.5 million different hues, and 38 low-energy LED lights which produce more than 4.2 billion different hues. This complex lighting system is controlled by two computers and more than 15 km (49,213 feet) of wiring. High-impact lighting and environmentally-friendly smoke effects enhance the experience. For the first time, the sound and light show on Parliament Hill will use a color laser to punctuate transitions and add depth, making this a truly multimedia show.
Northern Lights features an original score, stirring narration and captivating sound effects. These sounds are brought to life on the front lawn of Parliament Hill using an audio system custom built for the show. The rich soundtrack is mixed using a 7.1 surround sound system, with 18 speakers set up in 8 different locations around the site. This system was designed to improve the clarity of the narration and soundtrack, and to create a more immersive experience. The audio system has a total of 38,000 watts of power, 15,000 of which comes from the subwoofers. The audio signal is fully digital.
Video programming for a large-scale multimedia show like Northern Lights requires very specialized software and a powerful control system. The show uses 10 different servers, almost 200 gigabytes of processing power, and 80 gigabytes of video RAM. The image projected on the Centre Block is comprised of up to 35 million pixels (to put this in perspective, a high definition television screen can display just over 2 million pixels at a time).
With a show as complex as Northern Lights, many different types of equipment have to communicate with each other flawlessly, and this is accomplished through an intricate show control system that links lighting, video, audio, time code, network and control signals. This amazing system, designed by the show's technical director and his team, uses 150 km of cable, including just over 7.5 km of fibre optic cable, and almost a kilometre of speaker line. There are four different networks, one of which is entirely dedicated to the safety systems related to the show's laser. The show's system includes more than 2,500 individual signal connections, all of which must work together seamlessly to bring the show to life.
The projection trailer in the Centre Aisle is covered with LED screens on three sides. This "CUBE" of video screens counts down to show time and hosts interactive games before the show. During Northern Lights, the LED screens help tell the story, and a colour laser housed in the CUBE, beams out onto Parliament.
The interactive CUBE activities begin about one hour prior to the start of Northern Lights and run approximately 55 minutes.
Parking is not available on Parliament Hill. Numerous public and municipal parking lots ($) are located nearby. Free indoor parking is available on Saturdays and Sundays at the World Exchange Plaza located at 45 O’Connor Street (map). Garage entrances are on Metcalfe and on Queen streets. Please respect indoor parking signs posting restrictions that apply at all times.
Outdoor public washrooms are located to the right of the Centre Block building (to the left when looking at the building).

13 lipca 2019, sobota, godz. 9:00 - Doroczne obrączkowanie jaskółek - Purple Martin BandingAdres: Nepean Sailing Club, 3259 Carling Ave. (mapa)
Piotr Huszcz - The Martin Man zaprasza
Peter Huszcz - The martin Man invites you
to the Nepean Sailing Club, where he, as a volunteer, tends a purple martin “condo complex” and educates the public about this unique and fragile bird for the past 17 years. Every spring, they swoop into town, glossy aerial acrobats that travel all the way from their wintering grounds in Brazil to spend summers in the capital. And every spring, between 50 and 100 pairs of purple martins make their way to the two martin condos at the Nepean Sailing Club, where they set up nests and spend their days diving and swooping on the air currents in search of insects.
Peter invites others to watch the banding of the nestlings, encouraging anyone and everyone to learn more about these birds. The event has a festive atmosphere. After a brief talk about the wonders of purple martins, Huszcz lowers the birdhouses and opens each condo unit, removing the nestlings and giving kids a chance to hold them as he quickly and expertly bands them, all the while chatting about the birds and answering questions. His dedication has opened the eyes of hundreds of people to these particular birds and to the importance of understanding how our interactions with nature affect all creatures.
Peter bands all the babies every year before they fledge. He gives a talk about the martins, the kids get to hold the birds. They learn about the banding and what scientists have learned from recovering banded birds.
