Unless there is a specific reason to go to Shawinigan, you may want to stop in Ottawa instead. Shawinigan does however have a fantastic micro-brewery called the Trou du Diable... Grt menu and grt beer. Well worht the stop.

If your going to Portland Maine you may want to add Bar Harbor for the scenery or Freeport for the shopping.

Note. You may get more advice if you provide more info on your specific interests.

If you do go to Ottawa & it is worth a look, if only to see Canada's Capital & it's Parliament buildings, cross the Ottawa river into Quebec & go to Montreal following the river rather than the highway .. the highway route on the Ontario side from Ottawa to Montreal would be quicker but is deadly dull .. the Quebec side is far prettier.

I found recently that Google Maps has an option to avoid highways ... check that to see if it suits your purpose.

Perth, between Toronto & Montreal, is also a pretty spot to visit & I would choose a route that goes through it.

I just looked at the schedule for the bands. Edith Butler, a true Acadian treasure is performing. If I were you I wouldn't miss that show -> true cultural experience. I would google her if you are not familiar with her material!
