Enjoy the moment!
Since the summer of 2015, Parks Canada has installed a series of red Adirondack chairs at the Chambly Canal so that visitors can enjoy breathtaking views of the rich historical and natural heritage of this exceptional site.
Each location has been carefully selected enabling you to pause and explore the narratives of the landscape as you connect with history and nature.
Where are the red chairs?
Any means is fine for going in search of the red chairs along the 20 km of the Chambly Canal, whether on foot, by bicycle or even by boat! While some chairs are easy to spot, others require a little more effort.
To help you with your adventure, visit the Friends of the Chambly Canal who offer bike rentals near Locks 1-2-3 in Chambly or Gouin Bridge in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.
The adventure doesn't end at the Chambly Canal! Parks Canada has installed red Adirondack chairs in the most beautiful landscapes in the country, including those featured in Quebec's other historic canals. What are you waiting for to discover them?
A story to share
Once you've spotted the red chairs and you're comfortably seated, inhale deeply and take the time to observe the different elements that make up the landscape unfolding before your eyes.

Where did the red chair idea come from?
Initiated by Gros Morne National Park in 2011, Parks Canada's Red Chair Experience program has rapidly expanded to other national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas across the country.
Installed in locations that are most emblematic of Canada, the red Adirondack chairs enable visitors to experience unforgettable moments in exceptional settings while connecting with nature and history.
