Things to do: parks
Saint-Michel-des-Saints is a municipality in the Matawinie Regional County Municipality of Quebec, Canada. During its history, agriculture, forestry, recreation and tourism were the main purposes of the region.HistoryIn 1863, Thomas-Léandre Brassard settled near the falls of Pine Lake where he built a mill and a manor. Three years later, there were 136 inhabitants. In 1870, the post office opened. By 1883, the Parish of Saint-Michel-des-Saints was officially formed and followed two years later in 1885 by the formation of the parish municipality. The name Saint-Michel-des-Saints, chosen by Ignace Bourget at the suggestion of Father Brassard, honours Michael de Sanctis who lived from 1591 to 1625.In 1929, the dam on the Matawin River was constructed that would result in the formation of the Taureau Reservoir. This reservoir drowned the neighbouring village of Saint-Ignace-du-Lac and consequently this municipality was annexed by Saint-Michel-des-Saints in 1931, thereby increasing its territory by about 15km2.In 1979, the Parish Municipality of Saint-Michel-des-Saints and the United Township Municipality of Masson-et-Laviolette were merged to form the new Municipality of Saint-Michel-des-Saints.GeographySaint-Michel-des-Saints is the largest and northern-most municipality in the Lanaudière region (not considering the unorganized territories). The village itself is located at the northern end of Quebec Route 131 along the Matawin River, near the south-western corner of Taureau Reservoir.
