Since 1976 the Multicultural Association Chaleur Region Inc. has been encouraging the meeting of cultures, old and new, in our region and helping with the settlement and integration of our newcomers. In September 2009, the Association opened its Welcome and Integration Centre on the Youghall Campus of the Community College. The centre is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays and serves its clients in both French and English.
