Regardless of the time of year and the activities enjoyed, visitors to the Park are responsible for their own safety. This is why you must be self-sufficient in the event of any emergency that may arise.

Before you leave, please ensure you:

  • Have informed a contact of travel routes, return date and time;
  • Are prepared for unexpected weather conditions;
  • Choose an activity and route that is appropriate for your personal physical limits;
  • Have all equipment necessary to safely participate in the activity you have chosen;
  • Have the knowledge and equipment necessary to be able to survive multiple hours or days before help arrives.


  • Cellular telephone service is not available throughout all La Mauricie National Park.

In case of emergency:

  • contact La Mauricie National Park emergency service, 819-536-3180; or
  • notify a Canadian Ski Patrol employee or volunteer; or
  • go to the nearest telephone booth or emergency radio (see the map of La Mauricie National Park).
