Close to the nation's capital is the rural municipality of Cantley, Quebec. Its first pioneers settled here in the 1820's; a local government was established in 1889. Today it is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Canada.

Cantley 1889 was founded by volunteers interested in discovering Cantley's roots from the early 19th century - its logging on the Gatineau River, mining mica from the rocky Canadian Shield, farming its rolling hills and fields. Our mandate is to discover, catalogue, protect and promote our heritage.

We are a registered not-for-profit voluntary organization. We welcome your stories and photos of Cantley's past and your volunteer help.
