The 206,064 people who live in the Bas-Saint-Laurent are distributed among 135 cities, towns and villages and grouped into 8 administrative regions known as regional county municipalities (RCM's):

Kamouraska
Rivière-du-Loup
Témiscouata
Les Basques
Rimouski-Neigette
La Mitis
Matane
La Matapédia

The populated areas are located in the lowlands of the St. Lawrence, the foothills of the Appalachian plateau and in the Témiscouata and Matapédia valleys. Urban centers are distributed throughout the region. In each of the RCM's there is a major center which offers services to the surrounding population. Rimouski is the largest of these centers with a population of approximately 33,000

All queries for this region should be posted on the board for the MRC where records may be kept. For lists of municipalities within each MRC go to: http://www.bas-saint-laurent.org/texte.asp?id=418
