Québec 511 > Villages-relais


A village-relais is a municipality recognized by the ministere des Transports et de la Mobilité durable that offers, in cooperation with the local businesses, a variety of services and a pleasant and safe place to stop. In addition to services, the villages-relais offer travellers cultural and natural attractions, quality amenities and an environment that suits them, making visitors want to extend their stay.

Villages-relais were implemented with four main objectives in mind:

  • Increase the safety of road users (automobiles, trucks, buses, recreational vehicles) by offering facilities where they can stop at all times
  • Offer a wide range of services and a hospitable environment
  • Encourage physical improvements of the premises and of the buildings and promote their tourist value
  • Support local and regional development
