Welcome to the Heritage Lower Saint Lawrence (HLSL) website
Heritage Lower Saint Lawrence serves English speakers of Bas-Saint-Laurent or the Lower Saint Lawrence region in Québec, Canada. For more about the history and mission of the organization please visit our About Us page.
In June 2012 we opened the Heritage Cultural Resource Centre and Métis-sur-Mer Bilingual Public Library – the only bilingual public library in Bas-Saint-Laurent! Information about the Resource Centre and Library in Metis-sur-Mer can be found here.
February 2018 marks the opening of a NEW SATELLITE OFFICE in Rimouski! English services offered on site (schedule to come) include an English library, children’s storytime activities, health and well-being videconferences and help navigating the health and social services system. Please contact us if you’d like to volunteer or to donate books or DVD’s!
For up-to-date information about events that are accessible to the English-speaking communities in Métis-sur-Mer, Rimouski and surrounding areas, please see our Community Events Calendar.
For information about local, regional and provincial healthcare resources, please consult the Health Directory which includes information such as emergency numbers, accommodation for medical care, and health and social services organized by territory.
We are currently developing the online blog format of the Heritage Lower Saint Lawrence Newsletter. Back issues of our printed newsletter are available to read online or download from the Newsletter page.
