The Bas-Saint-Laurent region is a 300-kilometre stretch of land between La Pocatière and Les Méchins with a total surface area of approximately 22,000 square kilometres. With the St. Lawrence River to the north and New Brunswick and Maine to the south, our region is noted for its diversified agriculture and agri-food sector offering a wide range of products that are a source of pride for our farmers.
Agriculture and forestry are significant contributors to the regional economy in Bas-Saint-Laurent. They represent the lifeblood of many municipalities. This is why it is so important to work together to ensure these sectors flourish and grow.
