“The Municipality of Chelsea is very pleased with this partnership which will benefit all residents. The Municipality of Chelsea and Gatineau Park are geographically connected, and it is therefore only natural that we should assess how we can best pool our efforts and benefit from the expertise of each other. I am confident that this new partnership will allow us to provide better service to all residents and visitors, and to achieve a high standard of sustainable development and client experience.”

“With over 2.6 million visits a year, Gatineau Park, a conservation park, holds an important role in the life of the National Capital Region and even more so in the life of Chelsea. The National Capital Commission is therefore proud of this partnership with the Municipality of Chelsea, which will allow us to continue working together more effectively towards our common goals for a healthy park, a flourishing municipality and good quality of life for everyone.”
