Fort Chambly National Historic Site

Chambly ( Montérégie )

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.

During the War of 1812, the British Army built an important military complex on the site. 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.
