An introduction to the region
MRC de Rivière-du-Loup
Situated in the heart of the Lower St. Lawrence administrative region, the Rivière-du-Loup MRC (RCM, Regional County Municipalities) is in a favored geographical position. It is the hub for Eastern Canada’s principal highways. It is halfway between Montréal and Gaspé, near New Brunswick, the state of Maine, and on the St. Lawrence River’s northern shore, the Charlevoix, Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean and South Shore regions.
