Removal of the Ville de Vanier wreckage from the Lac Leamy outlet in Gatineau, Quebec

The Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) wishes to remove the wreck of the schooner Ville de Vanier which is in the waters of the outlet arm of Lac Leamy, in Gatineau.

This wreck was considered a vessel of potential concern in 2019, and was the subject of a technical assessment in 2020 which led to the decision to proceed with its removal from the waters. Indeed, it presents dangers for the safety, health, well-being of the public and the environment, and an advanced state of degradation.

 

Please note that this is a second posting for the Ville de Vanier removal project and is a more detailed version of the posting with reference number 84202.
