Human remains unearthed during Laval school construction work
Structural repairs on Villemaire school in Fabreville, were called off after work crews discovered human remains.
Workers unearthed multiple bones on one side of the building while digging the perimeter two weeks ago, solidifying the school foundation.
The bones are believed to be from a former cemetery once situated on the grounds where the school stands.
The cemetery belonged to the Sainte Rose de Lima Church, adjacent to the French elementary school.
The church building was constructed in 1856 and a cemetery of the same name was moved to another section of the Sainte-Rose Borough.
Archaeologists will be investigating the findings and excavating the site.
No work will be conducted on the area where the bones were found until then.
