Saint-Valentin, Québec, Canada - Église de Saint-Valentin Originally established in 1830 Current church built in 1972

Covering an area of 40 square kilometers, the municipality of Saint-Valentin was incorporated on July 1, 1855. The municipality is located on the Richelieu River, in the Regional County Municipality of Haut-Richelieu, the administrative region of Montérégie, between Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu and the border with the United States, distant from the border of about twenty kilometers.

On Valentine's Day, every year, for about ten days, the Saint Valentine's Day festival takes place.

Because of its homonym with the feast of Saint Valentine, dedicated to lovers, the post office of the Monteregian village uses a special cancellation stamp, as does the office of the French village of Saint-Valentin (department of Indre) . Thousands of cards are canceled every year.
Saint-Valentin is named in honor of Valentin de Rome who was chosen as patron of the parish.
