The Maskinongé RCM is a people’s region, with colourful legends, a dynamic spirit, an astonishing heritage, engaging smiles and friendly people. From the plain of Lac Saint-Pierre to La Mauricie National Park, no other region offers such a varied panorama, where agriculture, forestry, holiday resorts and conservation blend harmoniously. You can be in the mountains, in the woods, on a lake or river, in a field or in the city.

Our heritage is rich, and we take great care of it. Our designers never cease to surprise us: we have a peppermint “paparmanes” tree and an elf crossing! At Maski, as we call it, we cultivate good taste, delighting our taste buds. We love to eat well and enjoy a microbrewery beer or a fine wine. By bike or by car, we go from village to village just for the pleasure of seeing the landscape change along the way.
