The municipality

The municipality of Saint-Cyrille-de-Lessard (718 inhabitants in 2016; 23,072 ha) is located in the Appalachia mountains, 100 km south of Quebec City.

Saint-Cyrille-de-Lessard emerged as a parish, canonically established on 12 November 1844 and dedicated to St. Cyril, Bishop of Jerusalem. The domain was originally granted on 30 June 1698 to Pierre de Lessard by Louis de Buade, Count of Frontenac and Governor of Nouvelle-France, and Intendent Jean Bouchard. Lessard, however, did not care settling the domain, whose settlement was initiated on 9 November 1833 by Andrew Stuart, then lord of Lessard. The parish municipality of Saint-Pierre-de-Lessard was established on 1 July 1855. - Municipal website
