Help With ID

Nut in a Canoe
Can anyone decipher the decal and help figure out what this boat is? Ribs aren't rounded and have very little or no taper. 15-16' long. It's been fiberglassed at some point but definitely not original. No serial numbers on the stems and no tag that I could spot.

The middle part says "Faber." The top arc says "Made in Canada," and the lower arc says something in French... probably translates to "Made in Canada"?

That's my best guess.

Good eye! Anyone familiar with Fabers know if this label, which differs from the one on Dragonfly's site, helps put an age on it?
 
I agree with the thought that it could be a Faber...

We had a Faber with that same decal and it dated from the '60s. Somebody who really knows will probably jump in. It also seems to me the orange decal is older than the other one. Faber still makes snowshoes, but I see their current logo is different.

Wikipedia says this about the town: "Loretteville is a former city in central Quebec, Canada. It was amalgamated into Quebec City on January 1, 2002."

The Faber logo shown on my website is not a decal. It is from a printed catalog. I cannot recall ever seeing anything but the orange deck decal.
