Trois-Rivières (French pronunciation: [tʁwa ʁivjɛʁ]) is a city in Quebec, Canada. It is where the Saint-Maurice and Saint Lawrence Rivers meet. It was first created on July 4, 1634. It was the second permanent settlement in New France, after Quebec City in 1608.
The city's name is French for three rivers. It is called because the Saint-Maurice River, which is divided by two small islands at the river 's opening, has three mouths at the Saint Lawrence River.
