Territory and main cities

Located on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River, the Lanaudière region has experienced in recent years an urbanization process concentrated more in the southwestern part of the territory. The main municipalities of the region are urban extensions of the cities of Montreal and Laval, which explains the strong population growth of the past 20 years.

The northern zone is covered by forests conducive to the lumber industry and recreational tourism.
