The Government of Canada facilitates access to nature in the Greater Quebec City area

May 15, 2019 - Saint-Joachim, Quebec

Canada has an exceptional natural heritage. Nature is at the heart of Canadian identity and it is important for Canadians to discover and protect it.

Today, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, announced the opening of a new trail at the Cap Tourmente National Wildlife Area in Quebec.

The new Les Chutes trail includes stairs and four lookouts. The trail offers a spectacular view of three falls in Ruisseau de la Friponne and highlights an area of the reserve that was previously inaccessible to visitors. The Les Chutes trail project is part of the natural environment and respects the ecological integrity of the reserve. This development is in addition to various nature learning activities already available to young and old at the National Wildlife Area.
