access to the boat ramp AT CHARBONNEAU PARK

Good news! Éco-Nature is back this year to offer canoe, kayak and paddle board rentals at Charbonneau Park. Residents can benefit from a 15% discount on their rental! 

It is also possible to bring your own boats, but to reduce traffic and ensure the safety of all, they must be human-powered or electrically-powered only.

Are you a Rosemerite and owner of a motorboat? It is possible to launch your boat outside of the Éco-Nature's rental season

Personal identification number required 

Only Rosemerites are allowed to launch a boat at the Charbonneau Park boat launch at any time. A barrier is in place to control access. Boat owners must obtain a personal identification number (PIN) for 2023. This number is free, confidential and specific to each citizen. Please note that citizens who have already obtained a PIN in the last few years can keep it.

Don't have a PIN and want one? Please fill out the form available in the download section on the left side of the page and return it, by email, along with proof of residence, to loisirs@ville.rosemere.qc.ca. Please allow two business days for the PIN to be issued.

For any questions, please contact the Recreation Department at 450 621-3500, ext. 7380 or loisirs@ville.rosemere.qc.ca


IMPORTANT

It is strictly forbidden to share your PIN number or you will lose your access to the boat launch.

The PIN holder must be on site at all times during the use of the boat launch and the aquatic recreational activity, otherwise his or her access code may be withdrawn.

It is not possible to approach the waterfront without a PIN.



PARKING

During your trip on the river, vehicles must be parked at Town Hall or at the arena.

It is strictly forbidden to park your vehicle near the gate or to use the spaces in front of Charbonneau Park.


PROTECTION OF THE RIVER AGAINST BLUE-GREEN ALGAE

To avoid contaminating the river, citizens must rinse clean their boat at home.

Cleaning your equipment and watercraft, at a safe distance from any body of water, will help to preserve a balanced environment. Help prevent the spread of invasive species by following these four steps before leaving a site, or before visiting another body of water.
  • Inspect any equipment that has been in contact with the water and remove all living organisms
  • Before you leave, drain any water found in or on your equipment (outboard motor, fish bags, coolers, etc.) and your watercraft
  • Clean the boat and all equipment with cold water for at least 30 seconds (for other methods, see the guide below)
  • Repeat these steps each time you visit a new body of water

To find out more about how to clean your equipment, see the Guide to best practice in aquatic environments to prevent
the introduction and propagation of aquatic invasive species on the Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs website at https://mffp.gouv.qc.ca/la-faune/especes/envahissantes/methodes-prevention/



SAINTE-THÉRÈSE BOAT LAUNCH

Please note that although it is located in Rosemère (111 Curé-Labelle Boulevard), the boat launch near the Marius-Dufresne Bridge belongs to the City of Sainte-Thérèse (as does the water purification station located on the same property).


The Marius-Dufresne Bridge boat launch, particularly with regard to the type of boat accepted or not, is therefore not under the authority of the Town of Rosemère.


If you have any questions on this subject, please contact the City of Sainte-Thérèse at 450 434-1440.



WATER SAFETY

The Town of Rosemère would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the boating safety tips to adopt on the Mille Îles River, as prescribed by the Sûreté du Québec.


In case of emergency, call 911.


Navigate while remaining sober

Although it is not forbidden in Quebec to consume alcohol aboard a boat, even if it is a motorboat, boaters who consume alcohol expose themselves to the same penalties as a driver on the road, as provided for in the Criminal Code.

Operate at a safe speed

Use the factors below to determine safe speed:
  • Ability to see ahead (fog, mist, rain and darkness)
  • Wind, water and current conditions
  • The speed at which your boat can change direction
  • The number and types of vessels operating near your boat
  • The presence of navigational hazards, such as rocks and stumps

Be aware of your surroundings

At all times, boaters are encouraged to be forward-thinking, vigilant and attentive while on the water:
  • Anticipate careless maneuvers by other boaters
  • Keep a reasonable distance from other boats
  • Be aware of other boaters' sound signals
  • Maneuver appropriately and quickly when a problematic situation arises

Prepare your trips

You must have the required equipment on board your boat and check its condition before you leave:
  • Wear a personal flotation device in good condition and of adequate size at all times
  • Have a means of telecommunication on board (cell phone, marine radio, etc.)
  • Plan your itinerary and consult the weather forecast before leaving
  • Have a map of the water with you
  • Inform someone of your route plan (itinerary, details on the boat and the people on board, etc.)
  • Bring what you need to prevent dehydration, heat stroke and hypothermia
