During the summer, it becomes the supply point for several dozen outfitters, and in the winter it is a major centre for the snowmobile industry. The Arbec sawmill, with 150 workers, is the main employer of the region. The Bazin River that flows through town is popular for 5- to 7-day canoe trips that end at the Gatineau River.

History

Parent was founded in 1910 when the National Transcontinental Railway was built through the area. It was named after Simon-Napoléon Parent, Québec Premier from 1900 to 1905 and Chairman of the Board of Transcontinental Railway from 1905 to 1911. In 1913, the Parish of Saint-Thomas was formed and two years later in 1915, the Parent Post Office opened.[2]

In 1947, the Village Municipality of Parent was established. The town was the site of a Pinetree Line radar site (RCAF Station Parent) from 1954 to 1963.

On March 26, 2003, Le Haut-Saint-Maurice Regional County Municipality was dissolved and all its municipalities and unorganized territories, including Parent, were amalgamated into the new City of La Tuque.[2]
