oTENTik closed due to works

Due to major work to be carried out at the Saint-Ours Canal National Historic Site, oTENTik accommodation units will not operate in the summer of 2020. The site will however remain accessible to all, and a special program will be set up in collaboration with the Friends of the Saint-Ours Canal during the summer season.

In addition to the Historic Canals Regulations, here are some rules that will allow oTENTik users to experience oTENTik accommodations comfortably and safely:

  • The use of campsites is restricted to no more than:
    • 6 people including a maximum of 4 adults and a minimum of one person who is at least 18 years of age;
    • 1 license plate-bearing vehicle (parking fee for additional vehicle);
    • 1 kitchen shelter (no tent).
  • Inside the oTENTIk it is forbidden to:
    • Cook food;
    • Use gas or propane lanterns;
    • Smoke.
  • oTENTik users must behave in a respectful manner and must:
    • Respect quiet hours from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m.;
    • Limit their alcohol consumption to their accommodation site;
    • Keep one’s site clean and return the equipment used to the same condition as what it was upon arrival.
  • Campfires are allowed only in provided fire pits and firewood must be purchased on the site. It is forbidden to:
    • Collect wood from the forest;
    • Bring firewood;
    • Use portable fireplaces and barbecues except those provided by Parks Canada.
  • All domestic animals must be kept on a leash at all times and cannot be left unattended. They are forbidden:
    • Inside the oTENTik at all times;
    • On the accommodation site after quiet hours.
  • It is prohibited to jump, dive, or swim in the canal and near the approach wharfs, as strong undercurrents make the area dangerous.
