Saint-Dominique, Québec, Canada  - Église de Saint-Dominique 1211, rue Principale, Saint-Dominique, QUÉBEC Original church established in 1833 (this one is newer) Source: Google maps

Civilly constituted on July 1, 1855, Saint-Dominique is located in the administrative region of Montérégie, part of the regional county municipality of Maskoutains.

Built on an intermediate plateau between the Richelieu Valley and the Eastern Townships, Saint-Domingue, often referred to as Saint-Domingue-de-Bagot, is located 9 km southeast of Saint-Hyacinthe, between Sainte-Rosalie and Saint -Pie in Montérégie.

The people of Dominica, descendants of people who came from Saint-Hyacinthe, Saint-Denis, Saint-Charles, Saint-Antoine and Saint-Marc-sur-Richelieu around 1800, received the nickname Côtes because there are abundance of locally sloping lanes. In the past, the exploitation of limestone was very lucrative there.

The municipality publishes its newspaper “Le Dominiquois” which appears once a month and which keeps residents up to date with news from Santo Domingo.
