The Municipality

Les Chenaux (meaning the channels in French) is a regional county municipality (RCM) in central Québec, Canada, in the Mauricie region. The seat is in Saint-Luc-de-Vincennes. It has 934 km² (land = 872 km²) and 17,900 inhabitants.
The RCM was created in 2002. Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel came from former Centre-de-la-Mauricie RCM, and the other municipalities came from the former Francheville RCM. Francheville RCM was dissolved when six of its municipalities amalgamated with the city of Trois-Rivières, and Saint-Étienne-des-Grès was added to the Maskinongé RCM. The remaining municipalities were grouped into the new RCM Les Chenaux.
There are 10 subdivisions:
