In a few words
The municipality of Saint-François-de-la-Rivière-du-Sud rests on a vast fertile plain crossed from west to east by the Rivière du Sud. Its thriving economy is based as much upon its prosperous dairy and hog farms as it is on its dynamic industrial sector. Anchored to a small rocky rise, the village stretches out over one kilometre and, slightly back from the main road, is home to an institutional site recognized by the Government of Québec and chosen as the regional heritage symbol. The municipality extends to the west along a small picturesque road.
