Our human gems

Our territory may be filled underground with all kinds of minerals, but it also has an incredible wealth: its inhabitants. These are warm, passionate, funny, open and experienced people. With smiling faces, helping hands and generous hearts. These people are our human gem, who shine and make the region shine. 

Guillaume Rivest, a great outdoors enthusiast

Guillaume Rivest talks about the forest as the place he actually grew up in. Born in Bellecombe, on the outskirts of Rouyn-Noranda, he was introduced as a child to the joys of hunting, fishing, expeditions and campfires. 

Sébastien Bélisle, expert in the art of entrepreneurship

Sébastien Bélisle grew up in Sullivan, on the outskirts of Val-d’Or, but chose to settle in Abitibi-Ouest more than twenty years ago. However, the way he talks passionately and enthusiastically about this territory makes it sound as if he has lived there his entire life.
