The Gatineau River Heritage Paddle: A Guide was developed as a publication for boaters on the Gatineau River identifying present and past landmarks from Wakefield to the Chelsea Dam and increase general awareness of our river's rich heritage - both historical and environmental.

The creation of the Gatineau River Heritage Paddle Guide has been a collaborative effort between three Gatineau Valley groups, the Gatineau Valley Historical Society (GVHS), the Friends of the Gatineau River (FOG) and Cantley 1889.
