The Centre-du-Québec region is located at the heart of the province between Montreal and Quebec City on the south shore of the St. Lawrence. It’s composed of five regional municipal counties (RCM) and 80 municipalities. The main cities are Drummondville, Victoriaville, Plessisville, Nicolet and Bécancour.
You can buy a property in the Centre-du-Québec region’s cities and towns, and Via Capitale offers many choices. When you buy a property in the Centre-du-Québec region through a Via Capitale broker, the Via Capitale broker will offer you the benefits of the Via Capitale protections program. This protection for mortgage payments, plumbing, electricity and heating are reassuring when you settle in a new home.
The area is booming economically with sustainable development companies such as Cascades, Bécancour Smelter, Centrale Nucléaire Gentilly 2, Olymel and S.G.T. 2000 to name but a few.
Centre-du-Québec has a lot to offer tourists, including 18th century estates, traditional 19th century homes, historic sites surrounded by valleys and plains, numerous local products and cheese farms that can easily compete with bigger farms. Cranberries and maple syrup products are also popular.
And since the region is the largest migration stop for Quebec’s white geese, you’ll find edible goose products. This tourism area is also home to the largest heronry in North America, at Lac Saint-Pierre. The lake was designated a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2000.
Summer or winter, nature and outdoors enthusiasts can enjoy their activities in Centre-du-Québec.
There’s a wide variety of festivals such as the Cranberry Festival and the Mondial des cultures.
