The start of a brand new navigation season in the Historic Canals

Chambly, Friday May 15, 2015 – In order to mark the opening of the five historic canals in Quebec for navigation, the Parks Canada team was happy to welcome the first boaters of the 2015 season.

On the picture, Ms. Véronique Mallette from Varennes was presented with a kit of Parks Canada brand products at the Chambly Canal.

Parks Canada also reminds boaters that, from May 15 to June 30, 2015, they will receive a second pass through Parks Canada’s heritage canals free with the purchase of a single lockage permit at one of the lock stations. For all the details about this offer, go to:
