Travel Tips for Rimouski

The St. Lawrence River

by Blatherwick

Rimouski is a good place to watch out over the St. Lawrence River. Many maritime mariners come from and/or get their training on merchant ships in Rimouski.

The St. Lawrence River with the five fresh-water inland Great Lakes, Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario, forms one of the great river systems of the world. The importance to North America of the St. Lawrence Riveras a trade route cannot be over-estimated. As a natural highway between all points west of the Maritime Provinces and Europe, it is unique in permitting ocean traffic to penetrate into the heart of the continent. On the other hand, the St Lawrence is not open throughout the year; the average tune between the arrival of the first vessel at Montreal from sea and the departure of the last ocean vessel is seven months.

The first European to navigate the St. Lawrence was Jacques Cartier, who on 9 June 1534 first sighted the river and also claimed New France for Francis I. Until the early 1600s, the French used the name Rivière du Canada to designate the Saint Lawrence upstream to Montreal and the Ottawa River after Montreal. The Saint Lawrence River served as the main route for exploration of the North American interior from Europe.

CEGEP de Rimouski

by Blatherwick

Rimouski is a major regional centre and is home of several institutions such as Université du Québec à Rimouski and CEGEP (Collège d'enseignement général et professionnel) de Rimouski.

You may notice that the CEGEP is a rather large structure with a cross on it. I would make you think that it was a church building. Well you're right. In 1964 Premier Jean Lesage introduced Bill 60. With Quebec society in the throes of the Quiet Revolution, the time was ripe for an overhaul of the church-dominated education system. The reforms were dramatic. Quebec instituted a series of reforms that created 55 Catholic and nine Protestant school boards out of a complicated patchwork of parish-based schools. With this reform came the provincial education ministry, and, in 1966, the CEGEP system. This building used to be a Church Parish as well.

Students in the university stream, finishing secondary school after Grade 11 (Secondary V, ages 16-17), attend CEGEP for two years; in consequence, Quebec universities offer bachelor's degree programs lasting three years instead of the usual four for students from outside Quebec. These students can choose from a variety of provincial government-established courses of study including both required courses and options.

Successful completion of a pre-university program at CEGEP results in the granting of a provincial government-issued diploma, the DEC (Diplôme d'études collégiales).

We stopped overnight at Rimouski on our way home from a 20 day holiday in Shediac New Brunswick ( see Moncton Page) We also visited Halifax Harbor. The picture shows Simonne and my sister Claudette and the famous ( CONCORDIA UNIVERSITY SHIP ) in the harbor. Female students have to win a contest to become a crew member and learn their school lessons and complete their high school year while sailing around the world. A full year trip.
