Victoriaville The Essential
Interesting
The city of Victoriaville is the capital of the Bois-Francs region, so called because of the predominance of maple trees in the area. Maple products are the backbone of the local economy, along with forestry and dairy cattle. The town of Arthabaska, now part of Victoriaville, retains its plethora of cultural opportunities and historical sites, including the home of Sir Wilfred Laurier, Prime Minister of Quebec from 1896 to 1911.
