Canada Lands is undertaking a consultation process to assess the future of the former Chapais Farm.
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada had operated the agricultural research site to develop new products for the Canadian agri-food industry. When this activity was relocated to Saint-Augustin in 2014, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada designated CLC to reclassify the site.
Covering 40 hectares (108 acres) of land, the site is divided into three major geological terraces on the river. It is effectively isolated and enclosed from neighbouring urban districts and functions. The site is accessible only via boulevard Guillaume-Couture, which is a main roadway in the Saint-Romuald sector. To the northeast, the Valero oil pipeline delineates it from the surrounding area. The cliff, although it provides an unobstructed view of the river and Quebec City, completely separates the site from St. Lawrence Street. On the site, two distinct areas are identified: the wooded area on the southwest side on a steep terrain adjacent to the Rivière à la Scie and an open area, on which 17 buildings have been built.
During the reclassification process, CLC met with the City of Lévis on several occasions and indicated its intention to consult the population of Lévis before any possible planning. On November 13, 2019, at the Complexe 2 glaces Honco in Lévis, residents and several organizations expressed their views on the site’s purpose.
Canada Lands Company would like to thank everyone who attended the public meeting about the Chapais Farm on November 13. For those who were not able to attend, please refer to the sidebar menu on the right for presentation some materials from the event that you can download and view.
