La Rivi?re Sainte-Croix



English

From the Chiputneticook Lakes, the waters of the St. Croix River tumble through rolling Appalachian scenery to one of the most historic estuaries in Canada, at Passamaquoddy Bay. Here, French colonization in North America began in 1604 on St. Croix Island. The river was travelled for millennia by native fishermen and traders and as an international border, British Loyalist and others later crossed these waters to contribute to the founding of Canada. Today, the St. Croix scenery, historic communities and traditional recreational fishing and canoeing continue to attract many to the region. For these unique features the New Brunswick side of the St. Croix River has been proclaimed a Canadian Heritage River.

Des lacs Chiputneticook, la rivi?re Sainte-Croix d?vale une contr?e appalachienne onduleuse jusqu?? un des estuaires les plus charges d?histoire au Canada, ? la baie de Passamoquoddy. C?est dans l?ile Sainte Croix, en 1604, que d?buta la colonisation fran?aise en Am?rique du Nord. Pendant des mill?naires, des p?cheurs autochtones et des marchands sillonn?rent la Saint-Croix. Puis,, des loyalistes britanniques et d?autres personnes travers?rent cette fronti?re internationale pour venir contribuer ? la fondation du Canada. Ses paysage, ses villages historiques ains que la p?che et le canotage continuent d?attirer beaucoup de gens dans la r?gion. Pour ces caract?ristiques unique, la partie n?o-brunswickoise de la Sainte-Croix a ?t? dign?e Rivi?re du patrimoine canadien.
