Rouyn-Noranda, the capital of one of the youngest regions in Quebec, the main urban center north of Montreal and the 18th largest city in the province, is a city of contrasts and paradoxes.

The population of 41,475 inhabitants (2012) is dispersed over a geographical area of some 6,500 square kilometers, where commercial and industrial activities cohabit with a bustling and sparkling cultural nature.

A major center of competence for research and education, Rouyn-Noranda « Student City » welcomes students from as far as China, New Caledonia and Northern Quebec.

Rouyn-Noranda is equidistant between Montreal and Toronto and a gateway to Northern Canada’s hydropower, mining and tourist treasures.
