l'Acad?mie St. Ann

For over a century, St. Ann's played an important role in the educational life of Western Canada. It served as the regional motherhouse for the Sisters of St. Ann, the major female Roman Catholic teaching and nursing order in British Columbia, which had opened its first school on the site in 1858. Inspired by convent designs in the Sisters' native Quebec, the Academy was built in three stages between 1871 and 1910. Among its notable features is the chapel, built as Victoria's first Roman Catholic church in 1858 and later attached to the rear of the convent. St. Ann's and its gardens are among Victoria's most venerable landmarks.

Pendant plus d'un si?cle, l'acad?mie St. Ann joua un r?le ?ducatif important dans l'Ouest du Canada. Elle servit de maison m?re r?gionale des S?urs de Sainte-Anne, principal ordre catholique d'enseignantes et d'infirmi?res de la Colombie-Britannique, qui avait ouvert sa premi?re ?cole ici, en 1858. Inspir?e des couvents du Qu?bec, r?gion d'origine des S?urs, l'acad?mie fut construite en trois ?tapes entre 1871 et 1910. La chapelle, premi?re ?glise catholique de Victoria, fut b?tie en 1858 et attach?e par la suite ? l'arri?re du couvent. L'acad?mie et ses jardins comptent parmi les sites les plus v?n?rables de la ville.
