List of National Historic Sites of Canada in France

This is a list of National Historic Sites of Canada (French: Lieux historiques nationaux du Canada) in France. Canada has designated only two sites outside its borders as National Historic Sites, both of which are war memorials in northern France commemorating Canadian and Newfoundland losses in the First World War.[1]

This list uses the designation names as recognized by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada, which may not necessarily be the official or colloquial names of the sites.
