Snowmobilers’ Right of Access

The well-groomed trails that snowmobilers enjoy in Lanaudière are the result of the efforts of many volunteers from local clubs. When you purchase your Right of Access from the club associated with the trails you wish to use, you’re helping that club in its work. Note that the Right of Access is mandatory for snowmobilers.

Fees for Rights of Access include applicable taxes and the cost of civil liability insurance, under article 19 of the Off-road Vehicles Act.

PRE-SALE : December 9, 2016.

Obtain your annual Right of Access from a local club. Consult a list of snowmobile clubs in the region.

You need to obtain your Right of Access before using any trails, because:


  • A supplement is added to the sale price of the annual Right of Access when it is sold on the trails.
  • Daily and weekly Rights of Access cannot be sold on the trails.

Tourisme Lanaudière thanks all land-owners who graciously give up part of their land to allow our network of trails to extend throughout the region. We ask that you fully respect the rights of passage and stay on marked trails at all times.
