Winter visitor safety

Chambly Canal National Historic Site

Parks Canada wishes to remind users to be cautious at all times when using the banks of the Chambly Canal in the winter, as the snow-covered surfaces can be slippery. In order to take full advantage of your visit safely and to avoid any incident, here are some tips to follow:

  • The use of shoes adapted to winter conditions can help to reduce the risk of falling.
  • Avoid crossing railings and keep at a safe distance from the canal walls to avoid slipping.
  • For safety reasons, it is forbidden to venture on the ice that forms on the Chambly Canal in winter and to practice ice skating (apart from the designated places).

For areas offering maintained trails in winter, please visit the Winter Activities section.
