Ontario / Outaouais Chapter









President’s message

As president of the chapter Ontario / Outaouais, I am pleased to greet you and invite you to visit the area of the national capital. We have great attractions, including the Calypso water park at exit 79 of Highway 417.

Just two kilometres past Canada's largest water park, is located the Village Gagnon Park. This historic park has a special attraction for my family and the Gagnon family. Beginning in summer 2016, the heritage house Pommainville, relocated to the park, will become a regional museum. This house, built in 1880 and constructed of squared logs with an axe, is the only remnant of the original Village Gagnon. A repair allowed rediscovering its original appearance.

Each year, on the second Sunday in June, the Friends of the Village Gagnon organize a picnic at Park Village Gagnon (This year it will be Sunday, June 12, 2016).

Welcome everyone

Denis Pommainville



Chapter Ontario / Outaouais, previously known as Chapter of Eastern Ontario, was founded in 1995 by Mrs Fernande Gagnon-Dagenais who has been its first president. In 2000, our name became Chapter of the Eastern Ontario / Outaouais, in order to include the Quebec side of the area. Finally, at the end of 2013, following requests from the North Bay / Sudbury area, the name is changed again in Chapter Ontario / Outaouais to include all of Ontario. In 2015, we celebrated our twentieth anniversary. This anniversary is also the thirtieth anniversary of the association “Les Families Gagnon and Belzile Inc.” and the 375th anniversary of the arrival of our ancestors Gagnon in New France.
