Dear Citizens,

Dear Visitors,

Between Montréal and Gatineau, Lachute is the administrative seat of the Argenteuil regional county municipality (RCM). Incorporated in 1885, the city was a major industrial centre in the early 1900s owing to the hydraulic potential of the Rivière du Nord.

Lachute is now recognized for many of its other aspects, such as its charming Anglo-Saxon style, renowned golf course, bustling downtown area, winter and summer, and agri-tourism diversity. Life is good in Lachute! Many popular events and activities take place throughout the year:  Agricultural Fair, Family Festival, Country Western Festival, and the Auto Expo Day showcasing vintage cars. Lachute loves sports! Each year, the City of Lachute welcomes hockey players and fans at the National Midget Hockey Tournament and hosts the Stars-MAGH tournament highlighting the talents of hockey players at the pre-novice level. Winter fun is guaranteed with the Canadian Ski Marathon, which stops by Barron Park in February. Soccer fever is also on the rise in Lachute. In 2013, the city celebrated its first Soccer Festival and was chosen as host city for the 13th Quebec Regional Soccer Selections Tournament in 2015, in partnership with the Lachute Soccer Association.

Lachute is also the core city, economic and commercial hub of the Argenteuil RCM. It boasts a growing industrial park and a downtown filled with shops as diverse as they are fine; you’re in for a pleasant surprise! Lachute citizens will tell you how happy they are with the way the city is developing, respectful of the environment and community values that make Lachute the welcoming city it is. In addition to its great economic potential, the City of Lachute is home to many community organizations providing multiple public services humanely and effectively.

Come visit us, for business or pleasure, and you will see for yourself that the City of Lachute is a great place to live, in harmony, naturally!
