Fort George Church of England (St. Philip’s)

 -  1933 -1975

Religious Entity: Anglican

St. Phillip’s School at Fort George, QC opened in 1933. Because of its remote location, food supply was a problem and fresh water was often difficult to obtain. The school was destroyed by fire in 1943. Although it was rebuilt, by the mid-1950s it was in deplorable shape and overcrowded. In 1969 the federal government took over the administration of the school operating it as a residence for students attending local schools. By 1973, it had an all-Aboriginal staff.
