Made for the 350th anniversary of Saint-François-du-Lac in 2023. Many other historical and archaeological elements could enhance this tour because the timeline measuring the human occupation of the mouth of Saint-François River extends over several centuries, even millennia, thanks to the Aboriginal presence.


Thanks for the members of the Organizing Committee, to the members of the municipal council, and to all the long-time residents who agreed to share memories, photos, testimonials, life stories, etc.

Special thanks to Rosalie Crevier for the content of the point of interest on Fort Crevier.
