All these Gaspesians, by birth or adoption, are helping to make the region more vibrant than ever through their involvement, their work and their many projects. Find out who they are and why they chose Gaspésie.
« Living on the coast has helped teach me the importance of embracing your current situation and living in the moment. I truly understand the expression, “make hay while the sun shines,” or for me, “go garden when it's not raining,” or “snowshoe when the powder is fluffy and the wind’s died down.” »
« The quality of life here is second to none. I have such a beautiful nature in my backyard: from the sea to the mountains, it takes my breath away every day. It's a peice of paradise on Earth. »
« Fun winters!! Since moving here I have learned to love winter, I think having fun things to do and having the appropriate skidoo suits helps. In Ottawa, we used to joke that you don't see anyone in winter, it was like everyone was hibernating because the streets were noticeably dead. While Gaspe has more snow than I have ever seen, it makes it so much fun!! »
