Municipalité de Grosse-Île

Travel responsibly and sustainably

The Municipality of Grosse-Ile is a small Anglophone community reconstituted on January 1, 2006, situated on the Eastern sector of the Magdalen Islands. This island forms what is commonly known as the East End of the archipelago, and it is the best model of a natural conservation site on the Îles de la Madeleine. The East Point Wildlife Reserve connects the islands to one another. The anglophone inhabitants of Grosse-Île are primarly fischermen and fish plant workers. The salt mine, located at the entrance to the Grosse-ILe district, an impressively large installation, is unique in North America. Salt is mined from huge domes that form part of the geological base of the islands. Grosse Île Island is home to many bird watching sites.
