Canadian Lighthouses of Lake Superior Inc. (CLLS), is an umbrella organization that represents a movement to restore, preserve, maintain, and promote lighthouses that dot the northern shores of Lake Superior. Incorporated under the Ontario Historical Society CLLS’s duty is to provide public access to these unique heritage locations.

In the upcoming season the group will continue to maintain three lighthouses leases in the region. Porphyry, Shaganash and Trowbridge Lighthouses are maintained by the group and provide a  catalyst for other community groups, government departments and heritage users to engage with our incredibly beautiful area.

IMG_4390As the majority of surplus lighthouses fall further into disrepair, time is of the essence. Restoring the navigational history and sharing the stories an important priority. Through the membership driven organization, work is being done to not only support our history, but also allows us to access the environment we live in.

As Canadian Lighthouses works towards preserving more lighthouses and providing more interpretive experiences for visitors, it becomes even more apparent that we must work harder and faster to preserve our past before it is too late.

The organizations stretches from US/ Pigeon River Boarder (near Thunder Bay) and follows the shoreline to Sault Ste. Marie, approximately 800 km to the east and south. Simply stated, the Canadian Lighthouses on Lake Superior.
