DescriptionThis is a mixed urban and rural riding containing part of the regional county municipality of Le Haut-Richelieu and reaching south to the U.S. border. The major centres are St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, St-Luc and Iberville. CFB St-Jean is in this riding as well as a key customs office.

Manufacturing is the main industry, followed by retail trade. The average family income is $56,488 with unemployment of 6.7 per cent.

Almost 94 per cent of the population cited French as a mother tongue in the 2001 census, while less than three per cent cited English. Only 2.6 per cent are immigrants.
