He was born in Sainte-Clotilde, Quebec, the son of Fridolin Chenail and Évelina Catman, and was educated there, at Sainte-Marguerite-du-Lac-Masson, at the Collège de Laprairie and at Saint-Rémi. He was president and founder of Fermes du Soleil which specialized in the production and distribution of vegetables, and then Terres du Soleil, a company involved in real estate promotion. Chenail was a member of the municipal council for Sainte-Clotilde from 1973 to 1975 and 1976 to 1980 and mayor from 1982 to 1989. He was prefect for the regional municipality of Jardins-de-Napierville in 1987 and 1988.

In 2009, three men were accused of plotting to kill Chenail.[1]
