Laurentians
Located on the border of Québec and Ontario, Carillon is the most powerful generating station on the Rivière des Outaouais (Ottawa River). It was also the first generating station built by French-speaking engineers, back in the 1960s. Erected near the historic site of the battle of Dollard des Ormeaux, the facility is sure to impress you with its sheer size. Before or after your tour, you can also take advantage of the picturesque setting to visit the lock and watch boats go right through the dam! Important: Visitors must comply with certain obligations. Be sure to read the Schedule and practical information section of the Web site. Limited space; reservations required.
