Laval

  • laval
No end of things to do

In 1965, the island of Laval merged its 14 municipalities into a single city. Self-defined as “Urban by nature”, Laval today offers the best of both town and country. Along with superb shopping at mega-malls like Carrefour Laval or Centre Laval, attractions that combine fun with education, and numerous dining destinations, the island is an important centre of agricultural production, with fully 30% of its surface area given over to the activities of some 150 farmers and growers.

Montérégie

  • monteregie
Easy getaways close to Montréal

The dominant features of this region dotted with towns, villages and fertile fields are history and food. The Rivière Richelieu that starts in Lake Champlain on the Canada-U.S. border and empties into the St. Lawrence has seen its share of trade, not to mention skirmishes with First Nations and our neighbours to the south. The region has a Cider route that runs the gamut of the local brewers. If wine is more your thing, then the Montérégie Wine route will take you to a number of vineyards. Montérégie boasts the largest number of commercial sugar shacks in Québec: each spring, the rising of the sap signals the start of the feasting.

Mauricie

Discoveries a-plenty right next door

Located just 90 minutes away for 80% of Québec’s population, Mauricie is bisected by the Rivière Saint-Maurice, a tributary of the St. Lawrence. Consisting of nearly nine-tenths wilderness—good news for those who love the great outdoors—the region is marked by its religious and industrial history as much as by its cultural creativity and festive outlook.
