The connection with Mont-Orford National Park

What is the connection between Mont-Orford and Mont-Orford National Park? A big question that few people know the answer to!

Mont-Orford is a territory under lease, within the Mont-Orford National Park. What does "under-lease territory" mean? This means that we manage a territory belonging to the Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks through a lease that governs our actions. According to this lease, we are free to manage, administer and supervise the activities and the infrastructures found on our territory. These activities include; downhill skiing, ski touring, hiking, golf, cultural events and other activities.

Did you know?

Did you know that three other territories are found within the Mont-Orford National Parc? These include Orford Musique and the Jouvence resort, which are territories under lease, and finally Sépaq. Our four organizations are independent of one another, even if our territories touch.

No money share

Many believe that we share or receive money from Sépaq, in particular for and from hiking activities. This is not the case. We do not receive any funds from the Ministry or Sépaq for any activity whatsoever! Mont-Orford is completely financially autonomous.

PS! Did you know that in Quebec, a total of 8 territories under lease exist in the heart of national parks? They are:

  • Jouvence Resort
  • Boucherville Islands Golf
  • Mont Orford Golf Club
  • Mont Orford Ski Resort
  • Ski Saint Bruno
  • Orford Music
  • Mont-Mégantic Observatory
  • Mont-Tremblant Resort
  • Mor 140925 0086

The financial health of the Corporation

The financial health of the Corporation is very good!

The Corporation is in excellent financial health. Over the last several years, we have been completely financially self-sufficient for our annual operations.

The Corporation generates revenue solely through the sales of its services which include alpine skiing and alpine touring memberships, daily lift passes, special events access, the sale of green fees and golf memberships, and more.

Though the ski season generates most of our revenue and helps support our daily activities, it is however insufficient to allow us to make major infrastructure investments or to develop long-term and 4-season projects.

Financial help

We therefore apply for and receive on occasion grants from various government programs in order to develop large-scale projects that have major economic benefits for our region. Over the last few years we have received grants specifically for the extension of the main chalet and its event area, for the replacement of the Alfred-Desrochers chair lift and for improvements related to our snowmaking capabilities.
