Tucked between Rigaud and the Ontario border, Pointe-Fortune has a long history of welcoming visitors. The town’s ideal location on the Ottawa River made it both a home and stopover for indigenous peoples, fur traders, fishermen, loggers, dam builders, and farmers for centuries. These days, the quiet village gets most of its traffic from the ferry that runs across the lake to Carillon and from nature-loving guests who want to take advantage of its clean, green ways. While you’re there, stop by the local art gallery, do some fishing, or visit one of the local farms. Just off the 40, Pointe-Fortune is close to Rigaud and to Voyageur Provincial Park, which lies just over the border. Whether you’re headed up to Ottawa or down to Montréal, take the scenic route along the river to discover this little gem.
