Villes industrielles planifiées traces the creation and evolution of three company towns built in regions of Québec in order to exploit their rich natural resources. Shawinigan Falls (1899), Témiscaming (1917), and Arvida (1925) were all promoted as model communities by the companies that built them. Each town is a milestone in the development of modern urban planning in the province of Québec.
