Notre-Dame Cemetery is the most important burial ground in Gatineau and the Outaouais region. Since 1872, many of the region's pioneers and key personalities have been buried here. As part of the 100th anniversary of the 1924 matchmakers' labour dispute, discover where Donalda Charron, the matchmakers' spokeswoman, Louis Cousineau, the mayor at the time, the Oblates, a religious community that supported the strikers, and Germaine Cyr, victim of the Allumière Canada Match fire in 1933, among others, are laid to rest. You'll also appreciate our carefully restored funerary heritage, including the entrance arch and janitor's house.
