Culture and Living History

Nurtured by its artisans, storytellers, poets, musicians, and artists, Lanaudière-Mauricie, an important part of the province’s evolution, immerses you in the history and culture of Quebec.

Enriched by its Indigenous, French, and British heritage, Quebecois culture reinvents itself and expresses itself through art and history. Your mind will journey from museums to exhibitions and from galleries to workshops, encountering the history of the first colonization areas of New France, the exceptional architectural heritage that stems from it, and the vibrant popular traditions. From legends like The Bewitched Canoe to stories about raftsmen and felled logs, which have left their mark on our imagination, uncover the true folklore of Authentic Quebec.
