The English-speaking community of today

Although the number of Anglophones living in the 3 MRCs today barely reaches 1,000, at some point in the past (around 1860), they were close to 7,000.  The first settlers to move to Megantic County were mostly of American, Irish, Scottish and British descent.  Over the years, with the decline of the Asbestos mining industry and youth out-migration, the population has decreased significantly.  However, since 1996, it has stabilized to its current number.  Although small in size, the community remains active, vibrant and proud of its cultural heritage.
