Learn More About Cloridorme, Quebec
Cloridorme is a township municipality in the Gaspe Peninsula, Quebec, Canada. Cloridorme's economy is centered on fishing. Its population, according to the 2006 Canadian Census was 764. The township stretches for 16 kilometres (10 mi) along the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and includes Cloridorme Bay where the Little and Great Cloridorme Rivers have their mouths.
In addition to the village of Cloridorme itself, the township's territory also includes the communities of Cloridorme-Ouest, Petite-Anse, Pointe-à-la-Frégate, and Saint-Yvon.
The name Cloridorme is of uncertain origin. It is believed that it was named after an early settler from the early 19th century named Cloridan Côté, originally from Saint-Thomas-de-Montmagny. But this is unlikely since the name had been in use since the 18th century. A map of 1755 shows the plural form "Les Cloridormes", which had changed to "Les Chlorydormes" by the 19th century and remained in use until the early 20th century.
