2. Analysis of the Current Situation

2.1 Ownership

According to the 1993 agreement reached between Parks Canada and Canadian Pacific Hotels Corporation (Fairmont – Le Château Montebello), the land surrounding Cape Bonsecours and other parcels of land located here and there along Manor House Road and Cape Road were transferred to Parks Canada in the form of long-term lease that expires in 2035. The funeral chapel and adjacent cemetery remained under the jurisdiction of Heritage Canada, while Fairmont – Le Château Montebello kept the gardener's cottage as well as other sections of land deemed necessary for its hotel operations. Several old buildings and certain areas with strong archaeological potential therefore do not fall under Parks Canada jurisdiction.
