The modern day city of Saint-Georges officially came into being in May 1990, at which time the two former cities of Saint-Georges East and Saint-Georges West were merged. Today, nearly 200 years after the region was first settled, Saint-Georges is a thriving community that is home to approximately 33,704 residents.
Among its many qualities, Saint-Georges has the distinction of being able to provide many of the same kinds of services that are found in much larger centres, while at the same time offering the relaxed and friendly pace of life that typically characterizes a smaller community.
Some things you should know about Saint-Georges:
In a recent national study of the best places to live in Canada conducted by Moneysense magazine, Saint-Georges was ranked in the top 25% of the 209 communities that were surveyed. Even more significantly, Saint-Georges was ranked as being one of Quebec’s “Top Three” small cities in which to live.
What’s more, Saint-Georges is a place where the manufacturing industry is thriving. Although much has been written in recent years about the decline of manufacturing in many other regions of North America, a recent newspaper article noted that in Saint-Georges nearly 25% of the labour force is employed in manufacturing. That’s a higher proportion than in almost any other community in Quebec!
