Founded on what were once Anicinabe hunting grounds, Val-d’Or was born out of a gold rush in 1935.
Val-d’Or is literally built on top of gold. Hence its name and why the Cité de l’Or welcomes amateur miners. This dynamic, cosmopolitan city is located in a natural setting in the heart of the Canadian Shield. It offers the outdoors, nature, Indigenous traditions and a friendly greeting.
