Founders of the Relais Plein Air

The Relais plein air du Parc de la Gatineau and the land adjacent to it are located on the property of the Commission de la Capitale Nationale, a federal Crown corporation that ensures that the capital of Canada is a dynamic and inspiring source of pride for all Canadians and a legacy for generations to come. This property is on unceded Algonquin territory.

In 2002, the National Capital Commission and the City of Hull granted Club Skinouk the use of the space for the construction of a chalet for skiers and outdoor enthusiasts who use Gatineau Park. He established the Relais plein air du Parc de la Gatineau, a charitable organization, to ensure the sustainability of the establishment and promote, through its partnerships and programming, the practice of sports and outdoor activities for all and in all seasons.

The construction, which was completed at a cost of $ 1.2 million in 2003, was made possible through the extraordinary commitment of individuals, businesses and the public sector.

The Relais plein air du Parc de la Gatineau was inaugurated in 2003 in the presence of Mrs. Michelle Comeau, Vice-President of the National Capital Commission, Mr. Yves Ducharme, Mayor of Hull, Mr. Marcel Proulx, Federal Member of Parliament for Hull and Mr. Roch Cholette, Provincial Member of Parliament for Hull-Aylmer.
