Welcome to Prescott and Russell

The CSEPR has developed a guide primarily for newcomers to the region. Whether you are an immigrant, a student, a foreign worker or from another province, you will find in the following pages a lot of useful information that we hope will facilitate your settlement in our beautiful and large region.

This document highlights the daily life of people who have chosen, or who will eventually choose, to live and thrive in the United Counties of Prescott-Russell, at the eastern tip of Ontario.

Enjoy your reading and we look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful region.

N.B. The guide is only available in French
