<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Saint Valerien de Rimouski) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Saint Valerien de Rimouski. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Saint Valerien de Rimouski
