Sherbrooke (Cantons-de-l'Est) The Essential
Located on the steep slopes of a valley at the confluence of the Saint-François and Magog Rivers, Sherbrooke is the principal city of the Eastern Townships thanks to its early industrial dominance. The Université de Sherbrooke is located here, and the city serves the mining and agricultural industries in the region. Mt. Bellevue, across the Magog River, is a popular ski center.
