Community

With a forest of maple trees on our site, local families regularly flock to celebrate the trees’ sugars with music, dance, and taffy pulls. We sponsor community events, snowmobile trails and toboggan runs in winter, and ATV trails in summer. As many trails traverse our site, we also keep roads clear and safe year-round for local hunters and explorers.

Construction of Mont Sainte-Marguerite Wind created 200 jobs and 12 team members on-site operate and maintain the facility.

Environment

The region is known for its maple syrup and sugar shacks or “cabanes à sucres,” and the facility site is no exception—the turbines are surrounded by producing maple trees on private land.
