Quyon Real Estate Listings and Information

Quyon

Quyon is located on the Ottawa River north of Aylmer, Quebec.  It derived its name from the Quyon River, a tributary of the Ottawa River and was originally spelled "Quio", from the Native Algonquin word kweia (pronounced "quia"), meaning "Smaller River" or "sandy bottom river".  Its spelling was changed to "Quyon" to provide a compromise prononciation equally acceptable to both French and English speaking residents.  The village municipality of Quyon, along with the neighbouring municipalities of Onslow, Onslow-Partie-Sud, and Eardley, was amalgamated into the municipality of Pontiac in 1975.

Ferry across Ottawa River The West Carleton-Quyon Ferry (www.quyonferry.com) connects Quyon to the city of Ottawa (near Fitzroy Harbour) in the summer.   The ferry crossing allows residents of the National Capital Region to access the beautiful cottage country of the Pontiac and Outaouais more directly than by road.  The mighty Ottawa River offers miles and miles of great boating and fishing.  Along its shores, and in the surrounding area, you will find cottages, country homes and farms.  

The first weekend in July, Quyon hosts the Quyon JamFest (www.quyonjamfest.ca), featuring the best in country music with many well-known local musicians such as hometown girl, Gail Gavan, a recent inductee into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame.
