Your safety when visiting
On the banks, there are many users sharing the Chambly Canal path – cyclists, pedestrians and in-line skaters are among them. Parks Canada asks all visitors to follow the advice of public health experts on physical distancing. They must be careful in their choices to avoid injury and minimize any need for emergency response. In addition, we invite them to be courteous and obey the signage to make coexistence between all safer and more harmonious.
During your visit, the Public Health Agency of Canada recommends wearing non-medical masks.
