Located on the Richelieu River, Mont-Saint-Hilaire is an artists’ haven that sits in the mountainous Montérégie region of southern Quebec.
A love of nature is at the heart of this town, which boasts beautiful landscapes, hiking trails, and is home to the Gault Nature Reserve. Mont-Saint-Hilaire has inspired some of Canada’s greatest artists such as Paul-Émile Borduas, the leader of the avant-garde Automatiste movement who had a profound impact on the development of the visual arts in Canada.
A city of nature, art and history, Mont-Saint-Hilaire offers residents an exceptional quality of life. The preservation of the natural environment, the remarkable quality of its parks, as well as its rich history all add to the unique charm of this community. The strong local arts community, whose talent extends far beyond its borders, and the presence of three art museums has helped this town appreciate the arts in all forms for more than 20 years.
Winning SiriusXM Music Town would help give this community a much-needed boost to its artistic spirit after a difficult two years of the pandemic.
