Designation

Three Rivers

Why Was the River Designated?

The Cardigan, Brudenell, and Montague/Valleyfield Rivers were collectively designated as the Three Rivers in 2004 for their outstanding cultural and recreational values. The area was used by the Mi’kmaq. When the Europeans arrived, the Three Rivers was soon recognized as having one of the best harbours in North America. The rivers also include a variety of unspoiled habitats and shorelines.
