The historical development of the Outaouais has often found its origin in the Pontiac. It is within the Pontiac where the oldest traces of human artefacts were discovered, shortly after the retreat of the Champlain Sea. This beautiful valley is bounded by the Champlain Escarpment to the east and the Ottawa River to the west.
Colonized by the English, Irish, Scots, Germans, Poles and French, the Pontiac is a true cultural mosaic and has a very attractive architectural and natural heritage. Agricultural land, dams, mines, all testify to the community’s use of natural resources. The Clarendon area was the first surveyed for agriculture.
