In a nutshell

“Rurbanity” is the most distinctive feature of the region, reflected by the proximity of the rural environment to larger urban centres. Agricultural production has been key to the development of small businesses and large agri-food industries, while many people have helped agri-tourism blossom. The Vallée-du-Richelieu is a rallying point, whose prosperous economy has sown the seeds for promising initiatives to germinate in the agri-food sector as well as in local services.
