Did you know?
Thanks to Jacques Cartier's own travel accounts, we know that he wintered here in 1535-1536. He mentions that he spots a harbor at the confluence of the Saint-Charles and Lairet rivers, which he considers to be the ideal location to shelter his ships from the winds and tides of the St. Lawrence River.
