Where is L'Assomption, Québec, Canada ? 

L'Assomption is an off-island suburb of Montreal, in southwestern Quebec, Canada on the L'Assomption River. It is the seat of the Regional County Municipality of L'Assomption. It is located on the outer fringes of the Montreal urban area.

Most of the economy depends on the agricultural industries of the surrounding plains. It is also the cultural center of the region.

This city is also known to be the home town of the thrash metal band Reanimator, as you can hear their singer scream "Merci L'Assomption!" (which means "Thank you L'Assomption) at the end of the song "Black Bones" from their Thrashin' The Neighborhood EP.

L'Assomption is also home to Marie-Annick Lépine, a member of the highly popular néo-traditional Quebec band Les Cowboys Fringants.

In 2002, L'Assomption amalgamated with the parish of Saint-Gérard-Majella.wikipedia
