Founded in 1939, Val-Saint-Gilles is a small town located north of La Sarre near the borders of James Bay.

The town owes its origins to the Vautrin colonization plan put in place during the Great Depression in the 1930s.

The remote municipality of Val-Saint-Gilles boasts vast forests teeming with game of all kinds, lakes and rivers where the fishing is fine, and recreational trails for idyllic nature walks or to practice a favorite sport.

For a number of years now, the community has worked on developing a leisure and tourism center on the site of the historic fire station. The year-round center is the perfect place to get your fill of fresh air and wilderness while practicing an activity.

The locals are friendly and always pleased to see new faces.
