Habitat 67

Habitat 67 is a housing complex located on the Saint Lawrence river, in front of the Old Port of Montreal. The design was created by the architect Moshe Safdie for his master’s thesis at McGill University. “The building was realized as the main pavilion and thematic emblem for the International World Exposition and its theme, Man and His World, held in Montreal in 1967. Born of the socialist ideals of the 1960s, Safdie’s thesis housing project explored new solutions to urban design challenges and high-density living.” (CAC, McGill University).

Paddling on the Ottawa River – panoramic photo

Considered by many as one of the best places for kayaking, the Ottawa River have been hosting different international competitions, e.g., the 2007 World Kayak Championship.

None of this took place here on Bate Island at Canada’s capital, but down the river on its way to Quebec, near the Pontiac region. Yet, this is a great place for learning and training!
