Colorful land of the pioneers. This urban centre is surrounded by fields and woods creating a convivial milieu with a country atmosphere. The agri-food industry plays a very important role locally. When you take a tour down the country back roads, you’ll find roadside stands offering fresh farm produce. Founded in 1787, Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines is proud of its multiple historical buildings: the church (1902), the presbytery (1887), the convent (1883), in addition to the house, barn and stables of the Chaumont priests (1884). The community’s dynamism allows many major activities to take place: exhibitions, theme fairs and sports competitions. This town received a rating of 4 Fleurons from the Fleurons du Québec horticultural beautification program for municipalities.
