New at the Fort Chambly National Historic Site: Smuggling, outsmart the exhibition. Through this interactive exhibition of which you are the hero, welcome to the unrecognized world of smuggling in the 18th century! The French-owned East India Company held the exclusive right to beaver fur trade in New France at that time. Roughly 30 kilometres southeast of Montreal, Fort Chambly rises proudly at the foot of the Richelieu Rapids. At your arrival, be sure to take in the full expanse of this picturesque site, as it is both magnificent and strategic. From its original wooden fort, which was built in 1665 by the soldiers of the Carignan-Salières Regiment, to the exit of British troops in the mid-19th century, every corner of the site echoes military life.
