In a few words

Thetford Mines is the main city of the MRC des Appalaches and the largest urban agglomeration in the region, comprising both urban zones and agricultural areas.

The city is a business hub in which industry and the environment coexist in harmony. Nestled in a valley at the foot of the Appalachians, the municipality of Thetford Mines was founded in 1876 when chrysotile are was discovered.

The valley therefore features a unique landscape that is most remarkable because of the sharp contrast between the huge mining waste heaps and the abundant vegetation. It also boasts a high-quality, fully paved bike path. Located midway between Québec City and Sherbrooke, at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Thetford Mines is a leading regional centre in the Chaudière-Appalaches region.
