Major cities: Richmond, Valcourt, Windsor
The Val-Saint-François territory’s three unique epicentres, Valcourt, Richmond, and Windsor, provide a vibrant atmosphere where a world of possibilities awaits. You can sense the satisfaction of our locals with their brilliant decision to settle in the north Estrienne region. Birthplace to Joseph-Armand Bombardier, one of Quebec’s greatest builders and inventor of the snowmobile, you can still feel his presence thanks to a communal entrepreneurial spirit. You can also enjoy the union of Francophone and Anglophone cultures celebrated in both the architecture and the values of the region’s inhabitants. And with its proximity to services, Val-Saint-François is the perfect place for families!

KNOWLEDGE AND IDENTITY KEEPER
Proud Traditions and Innovation
In Val-Saint-François the region’s heritage and enthusiasm for experimentation come together to chart a path for growth. Innovative projects such as the Ulys Collective are born in an environment shaped by its well-established historical heritage.
Be Passionate and Get Inspired
Val-Saint-François is home to both enthusiastic people and exciting events. For example, the Grand Prix Ski-doo de Valcourt. It is also the perfect place for children to grow and thrive, as demonstrated by our youth involvement. By taking on their carbon-neutral project, children at the Odyssey School have shown that they are engaged, passionate, and not afraid to make a difference.
Family and Community Spirit
The residents of Val-Saint-François are rightfully proud of the ever-present founding legacy of Joseph-Armand Bombardier and his family. It is this sense of pride and the importance of family that inspires the community to forge close ties and come together, for example during the St. Patrick’s Day festivities.
