This section presents some stories of shipwrecks on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River. Here you will learn how shipwrecks have become tragic and terrifying events in people’s lives.

We have created a special diary for you on shipwrecks. In each article, we propose to explore the terrors of a shipwreck, the anticipation of news at home port and sometimes even the joy of a rescue. Sometimes, those who were aboard a sinking ship did not survive to tell their stories or their experiences of the events were different from those who were also there. This means that we do not know all the details or that there are several different versions of the same story.
