L'Islet, Québec

L'Islet is located within the former seigneuries of L'Islet-St-Jean and Bonsecours (granted 1677).

Before the arrival of the first resident parish priest in 1745, L'Islet was served by missionary priests, and the parish of Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours-de-L'Islet was founded in 1721. Until the end of the 19th century, agriculture was the principal economic activity.

The arrival of the railway in 1860 brought some industrial development: several brickworks exploited but soon exhausted the local clay deposits; a foundry that was in operation for several years has more recently become a trailer factory; a large cabinetmaking enterprise also established several shops in the village.
