Stanstead-Est

A diversified agri-tourism economy

Stanstead-Est is in fact the westernmost municipality of Coaticook. It counts 607 residents and is bisected north to south by two major roads, Route 143 and Highway 55. The municipality is known for its rich agriculture, with dairy as well as pig, poultry, cow and goat farming, not to mention its maple, field crop, forestry, and tree nursery sectors. Within the municipality are several agri-tourism companies offering blueberries, raspberries, apples, honey, garlic and fresh vegetables, as well as a large garden centre, two equestrian centres, and more.

The area also plays host to many activities thanks to a magnificent golf course looking out on the region, the Tomifobia nature trail, and a summer bike trail and winter cross-country trail, which are much appreciated by users. A particular stretch of this nature trail is treasured by ornithologists as one of very few places in Quebec where visitors can observe over 100 bird species living along the Tomifobia River, which runs through much of Stanstead-Est. The municipality is also proud of its small airport, many lovely scenic spots, and other businesses and attractions that make it an absolute pleasure to discover.
