Autobus les Sillons, founded in the 1970s, is well established in the realm of transport, particularly for school transport on the Magdalen Islands territory. In 1992, Nicolas Cormier buys the totality of the business and chooses his two sons as partners to ensure a smooth and long term commitment of its services. In 1996, Autobus le Sillons becomes an official partner of “Assurance Automobile du Québec” and is tasked with the mechanical verifications and technical expertise of the whole islands. A task that the company still abides by. In 1998, a service of general mechanic is also established.

In 2002, the business broaden its horizons with the addition of a brand new guided tour service and make the acquisition of a luxurious bus and a commercial minibus. It has since innovated and added a myriad of different and diverse tours.

In 2010, Autobus les Sillons buys its first 55 passengers luxurious coach, solidifying its position as a leader in terms of bus transport on the Magdalen Islands’ territory.

In March 1991 I started working for Autobus les Sillons inc. as a driver with the objective of buying the business from Mr. Euclide Arseneau. On July 1, 1991, I and my father Nicolas Cormier bought our first block of shares and on July 1, 1992 all of the shares of the company. I graduated through all stages in all departments until I graduated General Manager in 2012. In 2014 I became President of Autobus les Sillons, the third since the founding of the company.
