Inspired by the sound walks in Manhattan and Paris, Boréalis innovates by offering this urban tour: First Shift! Through First Shift, you’ll immerse yourself in the reality of an employee doing his first shift at the CIP, once the largest paper mill in the world! Filled with soundscapes and testimonials, this immersive tour tells the history of the plant and its neighbourhood, interspersed with anecdotes and photographic archives.
First Shift takes place at the heart of the Ste-Cécile neighbourhood and is a 50-minute-long tour (2 km).
