Quarantine station on Grosse-ÎIe, Quebec.
Most of the buildings at the quarantine station, including seven hospitals and several housing units, were hastily built in the summer of 1847, during a full-blown typhus epidemic, and did not meet the requirements. After Confederation, the buildings and equipment were modernized to meet the standards of the new Canadian government's immigration policies.
