Infrastructure Projects in Fort Chambly National Historic Site

October 2018 to July 2019

Protection of the shorelines between the Fort and the Guardhouse

  • Stabilization of the northeast retaining wall
  • Repairing the fences on the northeast retaining wall

The excavation work will be conducted under the supervision of Parks Canada’s archaeologists.

Performing this work requires the felling of several trees. Most of the trees are in fact at the end of their lives and their condition is insecure. All felled trees will be replaced over the coming months.

The landscape management plan aims to provide an integrated framework for addressing the needs of the various park facilities while also protecting its historical role.
