Saint-Raymond, also called Saint-Raymond de Portneuf, is a city in Quebec, Canada, located about 63km north-west of Quebec City. It is the largest city in population and area of the Portneuf Regional County Municipality.EconomySaint-Raymond developed mostly around the wood industry. Today, the sawmills and the wood drying, wood treating, plywood, and paper plants still play an essential role in the economy of the region, as well as the sugar shack, where maple syrup is produced. The area is noted as the home of international prize-winning cheese maker Alexis de Portneuf.HistoryFirst settlementsThe seigniory of Bourg-Louis, which includes the territory of Saint-Raymond, was initially occupied by the Huron. Their round hut was only a few feet away from the current location of the presbytery. The seigniory was jointly owned by Bernard-Antoine Panet and Peter Langlois. The two men encourage the colonization of Sainte-Anne river valley. Four couples from Ancienne-Lorette were the first to rise to the challenge: Alexis Cayer and Jane Skinner Pierre Plamondon and Louise Déry Pierre Duplain and Esther Robert Joson Déry and Marguerite Hamel It was in the spring of 1831 that the four men first left their home for the land the Huron had told them about. Once arrived, they shared the land among themselves. They spent the summers of 1831 and 1832 clearing the land. The four men went back to Ancienne-Lorette during the winters. In 1833, the women came with them to help prepare a permanent settlement. Other people subsequently came from the Ancienne-Lorette region.Plan your vacation with our Canada trip planner and discover the best things to do in Saint-Raymond.
