UFO Landing Pad

The world's first UFO landing pad! In 1967, a proposal was made to build the world's first UFO Landing Pad as a landmark for the town. The Government of Canada responded to this proposition and, during the grand opening on June 3 1967, St. Paul was declared the Centennial Capital of Canada.

Attractions & Events


History enthusiasts will enjoy touring Musée St. Paul, a museum which showcases the town’s origins as a Métis colony, the arrival of the homesteaders and the agricultural history of the area. Explore the historic Destrubé House – a building that was owned by some of the earliest settlers northeast of St. Paul. It definitely makes an interesting attraction as part of the museum.
