The next steps
In 2015, Public Works and Government Services Canada hired the firm ÉcoGénie to “assess the status of erosion on Îles-de-la-Paix.”
This environmental consulting firm was tasked with assessing the status of erosion on the islands of the Îles‐de‐la‐Paix National Wildlife Area, producing an intervention plan, identifying ecological engineering and restoration solutions, and producing plans and specifications for priority interventions.
ÉcoGénie will rank the interventions required on Îles-de-la-Paix from priority 1 (urgent) in red to priority 4 (low) in green. The 2019-2020 project led to the protection of sections 28B and 34-38, for a total of 680 metres.
The next priority section slated for protection is section 12, Île à Napoléon, near the levee built in 2001. We are currently working on finding grants and/or firms interested in this project.
