Study in Université du Québec in Chicoutimi, Canada
From Chicoutimi Travel Guide: On the banks of the Saguenay River, some 200 km (124 mi) north of Quebec City, lies Chicoutimi. Once a thriving industrial town built on the back of the regional pulp and paper industry, this watery destination has since evolved into a diverse urban center. In 1842, Scottish immigrant Peter Macleod founded the city on the site of an old French fur trading post. Since its conception, the city has lost its pulp mill status and is now more well-known as somewhat of a crossroads in the tourist-orientedSaguenay Region. It's a prime location for outdoor enthusiasts due to its excellent ski, snowmobile and hiking areas.
