Northern Lights, an all-new 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.
