The next steps

From Infrastructure Canada

Government of Canada is investing more than three million dollars in the Îles de la Paix National Wildlife Area, located in Lake Saint-Louis, to create and reclaim wetlands and habitats suitable for migratory birds, as well as to protect the shoreline against erosion. This project intends to offset the loss of natural environment resulting from the construction of the new Champlain Bridge.

The project will create an aquatic plant marsh and a shrub swamp, as well as improve the wooded swamp for the benefit of a diversity of wildlife, including migratory birds, thereby offsetting the loss of 2.2 hectares in surface area.

In addition, the construction of breakwaters and the consolidation of the archipelago shoreline through revegetation techniques will protect the shoreline against erosion.
