International trade

Impressive buildings

The LeBoutillier Warehouse is sure to impress. Made of wood, it is one of the largest buildings ever built for fishing in America. With its five floors, it stands out within a unique heritage complex classified by the governments of Quebec and Canada.



A living site

Since 1767, Paspébiac has been at the heart of the industrial history of fishing, a tradition that is still present today with its fishermen, factory and wharf. Promenade, beach, picnic tables and games for children are a pleasant addition to the visit.
