Trois Rivières, Québec

Trois Rivières, Québec - is a city in the Mauricie administrative region at the confluence of the Saint-Maurice and Saint Lawrence Rivers, on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River across from the city of Bécancour. It is approximately halfway between Montreal and Quebec City. Founded on July 4, 1634, it's the second permanent settlement in New France, after Quebec City in 1608. The city is named for the fact that the Saint-Maurice River, which is divided by two small islands at the river's opening, has three mouths at the Saint Lawrence River. Jean Béliveau, retired NHL hockey player for the Montreal Canadiens, inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1972 is from Trois Rivières.
