The dynamic community of L’Ascension-de-Notre‑Seigneur relies on agroforestry, industrial and commercial sectors, in addition to services and known tourist attractions. Its vast territory is mainly bordered by the city of Alma’s northern sector and Rivière Péribonka. The horticultural company Jardin Scullion stands out with robust flower gardens, games for children, and the boreal forest. Water sport enthusiasts can use the boat launch to navigate on the river up to the Péribonka IV dam over a distance of almost 100 kilometres. For snowmobiles and quads lovers, it’s a destination of choice with its restaurant-relay. The festival L’Ascension en Fête takes place in mid-August and the winter carnival in mid-February. There are a campground and a pump-out station on 4e Avenue (near the municipal garage).
