The return-to-the-land movement, the arrival of several public markets and an enthusiasm for the local economy have influenced the subjects of this new 100% Bas-Saint-Laurent webzine. À la BSL offers interviews with ambassadors from each region. Some were born in Bas-Saint-Laurent and others have adopted the region for its values, its rich nature and its wide-open spaces. Some have acquired businesses, others have developed their passion, but all have finally been able to "take the time to live" to the rhythm of the wind and the tides. Discover their stories!

While seals and the marine environment will be presented to you by the sea at Parc national du Bic, the story of a truly unique forest bordered by an immense lake awaits you at Parc national du Lac-Témiscouata.
