In November, the town is the host of the yearly Salon du Livre de Rimouski, the oldest event of the kind in the province of Quebec. It was created in 1964 by a group of women with a passion for literature, who wished to make literature more accessible to young readers. Every year, more than 125 authors from the region and its surroundings participate in the event, and over 300 Quebec Publishers distribute about 75 stands among themselves. Supported by Canada Heritage, the Canada Council of the Arts, the Society of development of the cultural companies of Quebec and the city of Rimouski, the event attracts more than 8000 visitors per year.

history construction

- ** History: Construction of the A-20 began in 1964. It should be noted that the A-20 is a part of the Trans-Canada Highway, from the A-25 interchange (Louis Hippolyte Lafontaine Tunnel) up to Route 185 (Quebec Route 185) at Rivière-du-Loup ** Notes: Autoroute 20 is composed of two separate segments. The western segment extends from the Ontario border to L'Isle-Verte (L'Isle-Verte, Quebec), and the eastern segment is a bypass of Rimouski, which was extended in 2003 to Luceville (Luceville, Quebec) and in 2008 to Mont-Joli. A section of this highway from Vaudreuil-Dorion eastward to the Galipeault Bridge (approximately 4 miles or 6.4 km) is a congested arterial four lane road. It is slowly being upgraded to Autoroute standard. ** Future: There are plans to connect both segments - extending the eastern segment to Trois-Pistoles (Trois-Pistoles, Quebec) and eventually connecting with the Rimouski bypass. - YXK CYXK Rimouski Airport Rimouski, Quebec, Canada - align "left" Université du Québec à Rimouski align "left" Rimouski and Lévis (Lévis, Quebec) style "text-align:center;" F - CJBR-FM 00 89.1 FM Rimouski Première Chaîne public (public broadcasting) news talk (talk radio) (French (French language)) - - CFYX-FM 00 93.3 FM Rimouski Groupe Radio Simard hot adult contemporary (French (French language)) - - CKMN-FM 00 96.5 FM Rimouski La radio communautaire du comté Rimouski et Mont-Joli community radio - - CIKI-FM 00 98.7 FM Rimouski Astral Media (NRJ (NRJ (Québec))) contemporary hit radio (French (French language)) - - CBRX-FM 0 101.5 FM Rimouski Espace musique public (public broadcasting) music (French (French language)) - - CJOI-FM 0 102.9 FM Rimouski Astral Media (Rouge FM) soft adult contemporary (French (French language)) - Adélard Godbout was born in Saint-Éloi (Saint-Éloi, Quebec).

All four networks air, with the exception of local advertising and a small amount of local programming, identical schedules throughout Quebec, with the network signals being essentially the output of their Montreal flagships. Local stations affiliated with the networks are located in each of the 10 television markets of Quebec: Montreal, Quebec City, Gatineau–Ottawa, Sherbrooke, Saguenay (Saguenay, Quebec), Trois-Rivières, Rivière-du-Loup, Rimouski, Abitibi-Témiscamingue, and Carleton-sur-Mer (Carleton-sur-Mer, Quebec). *1696 - During King William's War French troops seized the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland (Newfoundland and Labrador) and burned the city of St. John's (St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador). *1696 - René Lepage de Ste-Claire founded what will become the city of Rimouski later. He installed all his family in the Lower St.Lawrence. He obtained this Seigneurie from Augustin Rouer de la Cardonnière in exchange of a ground which he had on the Île d'Orléans. *1698 - Louis-Hector de Callière is made governor of New France after the death of Frontenac (Louis Buade de Frontenac) in November. Programming on V's O&O stations outside Montreal and Quebec City Since the rebranding of the TQS network to V, on August 31, 2009, all of V's owned and operated stations (O&O) outside Montreal and Quebec City have dropped all non-network programming and become de facto repeaters of Montreal's V O&O, CFJP-DT. Unlike O&O stations, non-owned affiliates of the V network, such as CFGS-DT in Gatineau, CJPC-TV in Rimouski, CFTF-DT in Rivière-du-Loup and CFVS-DT in Val-d'Or, continue to broadcast local programming. *Gatineau - CFGS-DT (owned by RNC Media) *Rimouski - CJPC-TV (owned by Télé Inter-Rives) *Rivière-du-Loup - CFTF-DT (owned by Télé Inter-Rives) For many years, TVA's schedule was very similar to that of what CTV offered before Baton Broadcasting took over the network (and similar to what Global (Global Television Network) offers today) in that it did not have what could be called a main schedule aside from news. For instance, Pathonic Communications (Réseau Pathonic), which owned the TVA affiliates in Quebec City, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières and Rimouski and provided programming to the affiliate in Rivière-du-Loup; offered programming that was radically different from that offered on CFTM. The differences were enough that Sherbrooke's CHLT-TV (CHLT-DT), whose over-the-air signal reaches Montreal, was carried on Montreal cable (cable television) systems. However, CFTM dominated the network to an even greater extent that Toronto's CFTO-TV (CFTO-DT) dominated CTV, contributing as much of 90% of the network's programming. That was not surprising as Montreal has always been the centre of French-language broadcasting in Canada. *Quebec City - CFCM-DT *Rimouski - CFER-TV *Saguenay (Saguenay, Quebec) - CJPM-DT Biography Born in Natashquan (Natashquan, Quebec (municipality)), on the far north shore of the St. Lawrence River in Quebec, he was educated in Rimouski and Quebec City.
