Statera, creator of wondrous experiences!

Our Story

Creation of the RIRÉRST

The Regroupement indépendant pour la relance économique de la région de Sorel-Tracy (RIRÉRST) is an NPO founded in 1999. decoration: line-through;”>The RIRÉRST, in collaboration with multiple local partners, aims to draw inspiration from the richness of the environment, including the Lake Saint-Pierre Biosphere Reserve, to create a new tourist destination of international scope, a source of business opportunities and socio-economic benefits.

Statera, an innovative tourist destination

In 2015, the RIRÉRST applied for funding under the new Maritime Strategy program – Tourism component. Then, in June of the same year, the Ministère du Tourisme announced they would grant $2.9 million to develop a loss leader for tourism: Statera, the Archipelago of Wonders. Thanks to this financial assistance, the RIRÉRST would realize this major tourism project in Sorel-Tracy in collaboration with XYZ Technologie Culturelle, chosen to design and realize the concept of immersive multimedia experiences. Statera, which means “balance” in Latin, highlights the fragile balance between nature with its four fundamental elements (water, fire, air, earth) and the industry which allowed the Sorel-Tracy region to grow. Statera, the Archipelago of Wonders, the new must-see attraction in the region, whose management is overseen by the RIRÉRST’s Board of Directors, welcomed its first visitors in 2018. Since then, Statera has become the major tourist attraction of the region and continues to innovate through the creation of wonderful experiences.

Lake Saint-Pierre Biosphere Reserve

On November 9, 2000, UNESCO recognized Lake Saint-Pierre, Quebec, as a biosphere reserve. Six years of effort and an unwavering faith in the principles of sustainable development have led to an entire region joining a promising project for Quebec. This title was obtained thanks to the tenacity of the three co-founders of the Biosphere Reserve: Normand Gariépy, Hélène Gignac and Louis Gagné.

Our mission

The mission of RIRÉRST-Statera is to position the city and region of Sorel-Tracy as an innovative ecotourism destination along the largest waterway in the world, the St. Lawrence River, in symbiosis with the Lake Saint-Pierre Biosphere Reserve, to develop and market an innovative tourism concept, a catalyst for destination strategy, an economic stimulus and a source of pride for the community.
