Since January 2018, Métis-sur-Mer has been celebrating 200 years of «community», a unique bilingual story that begins with the first settlers of the «Seigneurie de Métis», and with the first nations people who gave it its name. Every month, signature activities are organized and local history shared.
Heritage Lower Saint Lawrence is proud to be part of this unique project, one that highlights our strengths as a community. Indeed, every local organization and committee is involved in this program: more than 250 volunteers, community partners from Metis and neighboring municipalities, and our municipal councilors. They have combined their creativity, expertise and efforts to bring you a diversified program designed to celebrate Metis, its traditions, its history, its people… So sit back, and let us invite you to discover our beautiful community.
Summer marks a high time in our yearlong festivities. From May to December, Metis will show its colors through over 70 activities featuring local and not-so-local talent. There will be family activities, concerts, traditional Metis events with a twist, exhibitions, talks, storytelling, films, sports, theatre… and so much more! You will find there is a little something for every-one…
If you are a metissian we invite you to take part, volunteer, or take time to revisit your “story”. If you are passing through, why not join in, stay an extra night in one of our many accommodations, or sit down for a meal or a drink at one of our many establishments, and let yourself fall in love with this place, as we all have…
We thank the Ville de Métis-sur-Mer and the Government of Canada for their financial contributions, making these celebrations possible.
