JCCBI launches its first fish habitat compensation project

22 July 2020

The deconstruction of the original Champlain Bridge will have an impact on fish habitat and wetlands in the area throughout the work. Compensation projects will therefore be carried out to minimize this impact.

The deconstruction of the Champlain Bridge will include three compensation projects. The first involves taking farmland in Saint-Ignace-de-Loyola in the Saint-Pierre Lake archipelago and turning it into a floodplain. In this sector, areas will be developed to allow fish to spawn and create new habitats to promote the diversity of plants and animals, which will preserve biodiversity in this amazing region.

The JCCBI team is pleased to be working with the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) on this project.
