The 2021 season of the Jardin des Glaciers is canceled

THE GLACIER GARDEN WILL NOT RECEIVE VISITORS THIS SUMMER

The organization of the Jardin des glaciers as well as the president of the Corporation Plein Air Manicouagan (CPAM), Ms. Viviane Richard, have announced the non-opening of the Jardin des glaciers and the Vallée des coquillages for the 2021 summer season.

IMPACT OF COVID-19

The health crisis played a catalytic role in the decision-making process by forcing the non-opening of the Jardin des Glaciers for the summer of 2021. The uncertainty and complexity of operating our facilities with the distancing restrictions represented a high financial risk.

The small exhibition halls paired with sanitary measures considerably limit the operational capacities of the current facilities, forcing the Jardin des Glaciers to reduce the number of visitors per planned departure by 70 to 80%.

The members of the board of directors of the Corporation Plein Air Manicouagan therefore decided to cancel the 2021 touristic season of the Jardin des Glaciers in order to ensure a sound management of public funds as well as the sustainability of the organization.
