Message From The Mayor
On behalf of the Municipal Council, we are very pleased to offer you the opportunity to discover our municipality. While browsing through our web site, I hope that it will entice you to visit the Magdalen Islands and discover the madelinot hospitality along with our natural, unique and picturesque sceneries.
Founded on November 29, 1892, the Municipality of Grosse Ile is one of the two municipalities which are part of the Îles-de-la-Madeleine Agglomeration Council and is located on the East end of the Islands with a population of 490, who are mainly Anglophone.
We have decided to use this means of communication in order to enhance our visibility and improve relations with our citizens and other people wishing to obtain information about our municipality and the services we provide. We are working to continuously improve our economic situation and well-being while respecting our identity.
Within our municipality, you may wish to visit the following sites: the Council for Anglophone Magdalen Islanders (CAMI), well-known for its history, culture and heritage depicted through its Little Red Schoolhouse and Veteran’s Museum; the magnificent Old Harry Beach (Plage de la Grande Échouerie), East Point National Wildlife Reserve, Brion Island Ecological Reserve, Bird Rock, Jacques Cartier Site, the beautiful Anglican Churches of Holy Trinity and St. Peter’s-By-The-Sea as well as the Grosse Ile fishing harbour that boasts an outstanding view of the surrounding areas.
