amenagement-et-mise-en-valeur-du-sentier-de-uashat-2016-17Along the coast of Uashat and parallel to the Boulevard des Montagnais lies a small coastal footpath which offers a magnificent view of the baie de Sept-Îles. Breathtaking views of the ecosystem of the baie de Sept-Îles delight walkers. It is easy to forget how close you are to Downtown!


The project’s objectives were:

  • To revitalize the existing coastal footpath by performing a clean-up and creating a tourism and heritage corridor linking the Musée Shaputuan and the Vieux-Poste
  • To promote the historical and the contemporary aspects of Innu occupation of Uashat territory as well as the nature heritage of the area through the installation of interpretation panels
  • To promote the local population’s use of the footpath by organizing a large inauguration activity with the Innu Nation in the form of a rally


  • Installation of a fence, five garbage cans and four benches
  • Production of four interpretation panels on the history and natural heritage of the area
  • Clean-up of the trail
  • Inauguration in the form of an intercultural rally
