My Dad comes from Les Éboulements and even though we lived elsewhere when I was young, we spent many summers in the region. Charlevoix is deeply embedded in my DNA and I decided two years ago to move to Baie-Saint-Paul. Here the mountains merge with the sea and the people are so warm and welcoming, dynamic and so alive. I just love it!
Owner of La Bordée des Corneilles vegetable farm
I was born in Baie-Saint-Paul, but my family has lived in the region for a long time. My business was built on the lands that my great-great grandparents bought back around 1890!
Customer service Manager at Sépaq
I come from Baie Saint-Paul. I spent 8 years on Côte-Nord, but my spouse and I finally came back. We adore the region and find that Québec City is more easily accessible from here.
Supervisor, catering and bar operations at the Casino de Charlevoix
I am originally from Haiti but landed in Charlevoix at the age of 3. My family owns an outfitter and a campground. I thus grew up in this environment where I worked with my grand-parents, my mom, uncle and aunts. It is a true family business! It is here that I discovered my passion for tourism and customer service. That is what courses through my veins.
Palissades de Charlevoix’s Executive director and Manager
Thanks to Jean Sylvain, I discovered Charlevoix and the Palissades. I moved to the area in 1980 and since then, the Palissades is my second home. I was asked to manage the park in the early 2000’s.
Thierry G. Eck
General Manager at Hôtel & Spa Le Germain Charlevoix
I have since then been privileged to run the Hôtel & Spa Le Germain Charlevoix; the property combines modernity, design and comfort in magnificent natural surroundings and pays homage to the beautiful Charlevoix region’s heritage and wealth.
Miller at the Moulins de l’Isle-aux-Coudres
I was born here and will die here. I love the peace and quiet, the fascinating landscapes, taking the ferry to Isle-aux-Coudres and the fact that there is little traffic and pollution. I went to school in Québec for 7 years and readily returned.
General Manager of the Musée de Charlevoix
The Musée de Charlevoix is located in La Malbaie facing the Saint-Lawrence. Every day I marvel at the spectacular view. Weather permitting, we eat on the terrace installed on the museum’s rooftop which is also accessible to visitors. The view on the mountains and the river is breathtaking. On occasion, it is even possible to spot the whales!
President and owner of the Centre de l'émeu de Charlevoix
For six generations, my ancestors farmed the land where we stand today. When the project of starting an emu farm arose, I opted without hesitation for Saint-Urbain and the family lands where I grew up.
In charge of welcoming and informing tourists in the East sector for Tourisme Charlevoix
As they say in Charlevoix, I am an outsider. I hail from Lac Saint-Jean. After graduation, my wife and I were looking for work and we landed here. Her family comes from Charlevoix, so we had a favourable fondness for the region.
Three days a week between June and October, I operate the train between the Chute-Montmorency and Baie-Saint-Paul or between Baie-Saint-Paul and La Malbaie. Between us, I would make this journey for free and it would not even bother me! It is so beautiful it is hardly work! Furthermore, passengers are vacationing: on board the ambience is always pleasant.
Co-owner of Camping et Ranch du Fjord
Our campground and our ranch are located on my grandfather’s land. We were originally breeding livestock. Then, in 1994, my wife, Murielle, and I decided to open the equestrian center.
