Trois-Rivières edit

Trois-Rivières (French pronunciation: ​[tʁwɑ ʁivjɛʁ], locally [tʁwɔ ʁivjaɛ̯ʁ] (listen); "Three Rivers") is a city in the Mauricie administrative region of Quebec, Canada, at the confluence of the Saint-Maurice and Saint Lawrence rivers, on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River across from the city of Bécancour. It is part of the densely populated Quebec City–Windsor Corridor and is approximately halfway between Montreal and Quebec City. Trois-Rivières is the economic and cultural hub of the Mauricie region. The settlement was founded by French colonists on July 4, 1634, as the second permanent settlement in New France, after Quebec City in 1608.
