The Beauce Valley was originally populated by Abenaki, Algonquin and many other smaller First Nation bands. This region of Quebec slowly grew from the 1800s with a constant influx of immigrant French, English, and Irish. People from the many villages of the Beauce include a strong legacy of determination, perseverance, and beliefs that live on today. Beaucerons are still the hardest-working people of Quebec. Their reputation for conscientious and honest workers is known an admired far and wide.
