Drummondville is located at the junction of the St-Laurent plains and at the beginning of the Eastern Townships. The city nests in an ideal position to Montreal, Quebec, Trois-Rivières, and Sherbrooke; Drummondville has become one of the gathering cities par excellence in the province because of this strategic location.
For a long time, Drummondville has been an industry-oriented city and it is still well-known for this today. More than 488 manufactures contribute to the economic growth of the city with its
46 000 inhabitants (87 000 for the entire MRC Drummond).
Mostly centered around business at the start, tourism has continued to develop around this economic domain. Over the years, many attractions and events have appeared and many of these are closely linked to culture and Quebecois traditions. Welcome to Drummondville, “Capital of Expression and Traditions”
