About La Romaine

It is with the arrival of two pioneers from Berthier who came to settle around the village as fishermen, that “La Romaine” was born! Mr. George Métivier and Mr. Jean-Baptiste Guillemette settled there definitively in 1860.

The neighbouring islands already hosted fishermen’s families during the long summers. These families naturally migrated to the village and settled there permanently.

It was in 1953 that members of the Innu nation began to settle in the village. This is the start of a great cohabitation.

In the village, currently, in order to remember their story, we have a museum rich in storytelling on our origins and in the way of life of our ancestors. We also offer you, the expertience of a natural campsite nestled in the heart of the village, near services and along an absolutely magnificent pedestrian path. A simple walk in the village will teach you much more than a dozen books! The warm welcome from the curious population is eager to share their joie de vivre.
