Perched on the Seguenay River, the city of Saguenay is about 200km north of Quebec City and 126km upriver of Tadoussac. It was formed in 2002 when the cities of Chicoutimi, Jonquiere, La Baie and Laterriere plus the municipalities of Lac-Kenogami, Shipshaw and part of the township of Tremblay were merged into one. It's divided into 3 boroughs: Chicoutimi, Jonquiere and La Baie. History lovers will be smiling as the Musee du Fjord houses history displays that shouldn't be missed, plus an aquarium where you can have a chat to the fish. The La Pulperie de Chicoutimi Museum sitting in a 1800s wood-pulp mill shows off a wealth of the region's history. This is the gateway to the Saguenay Fjord National Park where you will find lurking in its forests black bears, beavers, moose and even Peregrine falcons, whilst its waters are home to 4 species of whale; blue whale, fin whale, minke whale and the beluga whale. Annually over 90,000 visitors rush to the area to hike, ski, camp, and kayak or to do a bit of ice fishing. Saguenay has a population of around the 145,950 mark with many bunkering down in coworking venues getting creative in between bouts of playing in the snow.
Saguenay may not be a tech hub per se, but it does sit in the country that is seeing a "brain-gain" rather than a "brain-drain" happening, with students and scientists arriving in record numbers. The public and commercial sectors are supporting entrepreneurial communities via connecting them with the best academic institutions and businesses. Canada is being touted as the business world's best-kept secret especially in the fields of artificial intelligence, clean technology and health care. Today it's competing on a global stage and is a major destination for commercial investment.
Coworking venues are but one more space for the creatives to gather en masse in collaborative mode to get their stuff done with a grin on their faces as they can bring their skis to work.
