Valcourt (Town and Township)

The history of Valcourt began modestly in the 18th century, but with the invention of the snowmobile by Joseph-Armand Bombardier, a young man from the village, the municipality experienced remarkable growth. The family of the famed innovator settled here around 1814, and in 1942 a factory began producing these vehicles that would transform winter travel and winter recreation. People come from all over to visit the great exhibition at the Museum of Ingenuity J. Armand Bombardier and the ultramodern Bombardier Recreational Products factory. For 40 years, the Yvonne L. Bombardier Cultural Centre has offered avant-garde visual arts programming. Golf enthusiasts meet here in the summer, and in February, the best snowmobile racers in North America come together for the Grand Prix Ski-Doo de Valcourt.
