Living in Trois-Rivieres

Trois-Rivieres (which translates to ‘Three Rivers’) is located in the Mauricie region of Q, Canada. It has earned its name due to its location near the Saint-Maurice and St Lawrence Rivers in which the Saint-Maurice is separated by two islands at the opening, leading to three mouths entering St Lawrence. Expatriates in Trois-Rivieres will be able to explore local sights such as the old city, concentrated by the river along the "Rue des Ursulines”, the Old Prison of Trois-Rivieres which is known as being a historical landmark, as well as the Notre-Dame-du-Cap Basilica and other great attractions. Expats living in Trois-Rivieres will also be able to experience the many festivals which are held in the city each year such as the FestiVoix de Trois-Rivieres, a large musical festival held every summer, and the International Festival of Poetry which celebrates the city’s status as the ‘poetry capital of Q’, whilst there are also a number of bars, restaurants and shops in the city to explore.
