Learn More About Normandin, Quebec
Normandin is a city located on the west side of Lac Saint-Jean in the Canadian province of Quebec.
Normandin is named after the surveyor Joseph-Laurent Normandin. Its history of European-Canadian settlement began in 1878 when the first pioneers arrived. Alphonse Laliberté was elected as Normandin's first mayor in 1890. In 1926, the village was set up as a municipality distinct from the township; the notary J.S.N. Turcotte occupied the function of first magistrate.
The city is the birthplace of radio talk show psychiatrist Pierre Mailloux. It is also the hometown (though not birthplace) of André Dédé Fortin, the late lead singer of Les Colocs.
