Est-Nord-Est is situated in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli (3,500 inhabitants), on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, in a region characterized by agriculture, forests, and the waterway. The origin of the centre’s name comes from this geographic situation, east-northeast of airports and city life (115 km from Quebec City and 350 km from Montreal).
