Fort Chambly is located at the edge of the Richelieu River, at the foot of the Chambly rapids. Built in 1711, this imposing stone fortification protected New France from a potential British invasion. The fort has resisted the upheavals of history and remains a valued reminder of the French presence in North America.

Restored by Parks Canada, Fort Chambly now houses exhibitions showcasing key moments in the history of New France.
