As we know it today, the municipality of L’Isle-aux-Allumettes originated from the amalgamation of the municipality of Chapeau, and the townships of L’Isle-aux-Allumettes and L’Isle-aux-Allumettes East in December 1998. The municipality includes the entire territory of the island as well as Morrison island. Its residential areas are the village of Chapeau and the Demers Centre, Desjardinsville, and St. Joseph hamlets.
The main economic activities of L’Isle-aux-Allumettes are agriculture and cottagers. In fact, leisure activities abound on the island: a bike path, canoe route, golf, and a heritage trail surround large fertile agricultural land used for grazing, forage crops and, more recently, hop harvesting. At Demers Centre, one can admire these beautiful hop stalks that rise up to 10 meters (32 feet) high at the end of the summer.
Located on the Ontario border, L’Isle-aux-Allumettes is the gateway between western Québec and northern Ontario.
