One of the newest villages on the Lower North Shore, Chevery is located along a sandy bay near the mouth of the thundering Netagamiou River. An early French fur-trading and seal-fishing post was established here in the 1730s. After the post was abandoned in the 1770s, there was no further settlement until 1931. That year, an experimental agricultural farm was established on the eastern bank of the nearby Cross River. With support from the federal government, William “Dosh” Anderson and his family cleared the land, imported livestock, and maintained vegetable gardens. The farm operated until World War II.

In the 1950s, residents of remote Gull Cliff Island, Aylmer Sound and various abandoned settlements requested a permanent mainland community with better access to services. This resulted in the establishment of Chevery

  • Netagamiou Falls: A scenic hiking trail along the bank of the river will lead you to these impressive falls.
  • Wolf Bay: A full day’s outing can be organized with a boat taxi operator to enchanting Wolf Bay, about 55 kilometres (34 miles) southwest of Chevery. The 150-year-old settlement consists of wharves, sheds, houses, and a family cemetery, and now serves as a summer fishing place.
  • Wolf Bay Migratory Bird Sanctuary: This sanctuary is located between the communities of Chevery and La Romaine. It is an important nesting area for the Common Eider Duck, Leach's Storm-Petrel, Razorbill, and other seabirds found on the Lower North Shore. During breeding season, Atlantic Puffins arrive here in large numbers.  There are no public activities permitted within the boundaries of this sanctuary.
