Tel Keshet

The Tel Keshet community project is ARTAO’s main project. A number of sub-projects are making Tel Keshet a reality.


A lasting community is founded on a solid constitution. Within the legal framework of the Code civil du Québec, preparing ARTAO’s statutes and operating policies is a whole project in itself, and requires significant time.

Off-grid building

A permanent settlement requires facilities. We are building the latter with no electricity, nor are we using a generator. This requires using appropriate technologies.

Beaver dams

Beavers naturally live in wetlands such as those which surround Tel Keshet. The settlement might come and go, but beavers will always be around. Building our infrastructure to handle the considerable challenge of beaver dams is a real challenge and an unending project.
