camera_man.pngFort William Historical Park is the perfect filming location for historic and period productions. This re-creation of the 19th-century inland headquarters of the North West Company's vast fur trading empire offers unrivalled locations to shoot documentaries, mini-series, and motion pictures.

Breathtaking shots are guaranteed with our more than forty reconstructed historic buildings enclosed by an immense palisade along the banks of the winding Kaministiquia River. The Fort's architectural grandeur is complemented by the natural panorama of boreal forests and rolling hills that surrounds it.

Our unique heritage site and facilities have made us a highly sought after location for a wide range of television and film projects. The Fort has received both international and national television exposure on a variety of series including "The People's History of Canada" (CBC), "Historylands" (History Channel), "Around the World Too," (Prime Network), and "Expanding Horizons" (Outdoor Life Network). Most recently, Rivard Productions completed shooting of the multi-million dollar epic docu-drama "Les Voyageurs."
