Michel Gilbert, Mayor of Mont-Saint-Hilaire, and his team of counsellors and employees are consistent and always innovative in their efforts to promote the municipality as a "City of nature, art and history".
Residents are at once the heart of the Mont Saint-Hilaire Biosphere Reserve and the region’s driving force. As the ultimate decision-makers, they express and act on their values, inviting their municipal representatives to follow suit. New arrivals or descendants of the region’s first settlers, they all learn what it means to live in a biosphere reserve.
Colette Comeau, a fiery woman and patient patron of the heritage of old Mont-Saint-Hilaire, opens for us the great book of our history and knows how to talk about it with passion.
