Occupying the southwestern tip of Quebec, 93% of the MRC is located in an agricultural zone, 45% of which is under forest cover. The territory, characterized by a flat relief except for Mount Covey Hill, borders the St. Lawrence River and the state of New York. Long warm seasons, a generous hydrographic basin and access to the multimodal network towards the United States and Ontario make it a particularly fertile ground for the production, transformation and transportation of agri-foodstuffs.
