The sense of community goes well beyond blood relatives
The Pontiac region is characterized by the strength and generosity of its community. People know that they can count on their neighbours in the same way that they can count on family members. (Often times, their neighbours are family members!) People come together to make progress, work together, and unite to celebrate from time to time. In each municipality, there are recreation or community associations that serve as anchors for residents who were born in the Pontiac region or who have made it their home.
