Carole Beauregard Fernet has been a committed landscape architect for almost 20 years, since completing her Bachelor's degree in the first graduating class of the Universite de Montreal's School of Landscape Architecture.
During her early professional years she worked for several federal and municipal agencies before opening her own firm, Fernet et Bergevin in partnership with Marie-Claude Bergevin, in Quebec City in 1975. Five years later, she founded her present firm, Carole Fernet et associés.
Her outstanding projects include the Master Plan for Bois-de-Liesse Regional Park (Montreal), the landscape design for Havre-de-Posche Park (Iles-de-la-Madeleine), the Master Plan for the Parc de Metis (lower St.Lawrence River), site development at the 1980 Floralies de Montreal, and her participation in the Parc de la Vilette international competition (Paris).
In the Quebec City area, she has prepared designs for the Bois-de-Coulonge, Pointe-au-Platon, Chauveau Regional Park and St.Charles River, as well as the pedestrian path within the fortifications of Quebec. She has also designed recreational and park projects in nearby Sillery, Ancienne-Lorette, Charlesbourg and St.Romuald, and is a commissioner on the Advisory Committee on the future of Pointe-A-Carcy in the old Fort of Quebec. Carole Beauregard has recently contributed greatly to the AAPQ in developing a strategic growth plan for the profession.
