Thanks for stopping by and exploring the Pioneers of the Beauce Valley, a blog about the people of the Beauce, a fertile valley in southern Quebec.
The Beauce Valley was originally populated by Abenaki, Algonquin and many other smaller First Nation bands. This region of Quebec slowly grew from the 1800s with a constant influx of immigrant French, English, and Irish. People from the many villages of the Beauce include a strong legacy of determination, perseverance, and beliefs that live on today. Beaucerons are still the hardest-working people of Quebec. Their reputation for conscientious and honest workers is known an admired far and wide.
