Growing and Thriving
With its historic strategic position, Vaudreuil-Soulanges has always been at the heart of commercial exchange.
Due to a steadily increasing population, the region is committed to maintaining the level of economic growth needed to ensure its residents’ quality of life.
We believe that with our global plan for regional development, we can maintain both quality of life and a calm environment while also helping many families find quality jobs in the region.
Made up of 23 municipalities, the Regional County Municipality of Vaudreuil-Soulanges has been growing for more than 15 years. Each of the region’s municipalities has a rising population and new businesses being established in their territory.
Strategic placement, easy access to Montreal, and an exceptional quality of life continues to draw a young demographic searching for homes in subdivisions or in upscale neighbourhoods.
In terms of education, anglophone and francophone populations are served, respectively, by the Commission scolaire des Trois-Lacs and Lester B. Pearson School Board. The Collège de Valleyfield and l’Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières are also present in the region. In 2016, it was announced that construction would begin on a hospital in the next few years.
