Public Access

The Municipality of Rawdon offers two municipal accesses for navigating Rawdon Lake and Pontbriand Lake.

Rawdon Lake
Boating is permitted on Rawdon Lake, however not with a gas motor boat (federal regulation). Boats (kayak, canoe, paddleboat, electric motor) can be launched at the municipal beach, located on 8th Avenue.

Pontbriand Lake
At Pontbriand Lake, you can launch a boat from the municipal launching ramp at Cascades Park. In accordance with By-law no 25-2006, both residents and non-residents with boats of 10 or more horsepower must first obtain a vignette to navigate the lake. The vignettes can be purchased at Cascades Park.

Vignettes prices:
Annual vignette (residents): $30
Daily vignette (non-residents): $150


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, at this time, seasonal boat vignettes will only be issued to residents, tenants and property owners in Rawdon


Until further notice, access to the boat launch ramp will be by appointment only : 450 834-8213


For respectful navigation by all, please comply with the Pontbriand Laske Code of Conduct, available here
