Mission, Vision and Values
The municipal council of Ivry-sur-le-Lac has the mandate to preserve its territory in as natural a state as possible so that it remains the peaceful haven it has always been. While always striving towards sound municipal management, the Municipality is committed to placing citizens’ needs as its key priority.
Ivry-sur-le-Lac strives to offer efficient and quality services, while ensuring the protection of the environment, the majestic landscapes and the numerous bodies of water of which Lac Manitou is the jewel.
Integrity requires honesty, loyalty and an ethical duty on the part of the Municipality’s elected officers and staff, allowing them to be great ambassadors of the Municipality at all times.
Integrity also means respect from the municipal administration, the members of the municipal council, but also our citizens. Respectful communications guarantee harmonious and sustainable co-operation.
Being effective means ensuring quality services are delivered in a timely manner. By placing the citizen at the centre of our priorities, we offer them service that meets their expectations.
Always providing precise and accurate information with clear explanations, when needed, ensures transparency in communications.
By equity, we mean fairness and integrity in all municipal domains and impartial treatment for all citizens.
Ivry-sur-le-Lac … a peaceful haven in its natural state for more than 100 years.
It was in 1852 that the first residents, Paul Meunier and Angélique Godon, settled on the territory of Ivry-sur-le-Lac. Since the arrival of the railway in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, the territory of Ivry-sur-le-Lac had discovered a new vocation: resort residences serving a wealthy clientele including Viscount Ogier d’Ivry, native of Le Mans, France in honor of whom the municipality will ultimately be named. The latter established a residence there around 1892, but the first settlers had already lived there since 1852. It was officially founded in 1912 under the name of “Ivry-sur-le-Lac”.
At first, the Viscount had named the place “Lac-Manitou”, a reference to the lake bearing the same name, but in 1912, at the time of civilly constituting the municipality, the residents decided to immortalize the Viscount’s name in the village’s appellation.
In addition, Ivry-sur-le-Lac was formed by removing from range III of the Township of Wolfe, five lots surrounding Lac Manitou.
Since then, the magnificent backdrop of mountains, lakes and valleys has hardly changed. Even today, the urban planning by-laws in force aim to maintain this natural beauty and the protection in all respects of nature over an area of nearly 35 square kilometers.
Mayor's Report and Highlights of the Financial Statements
As stipulated in Section 176.2.2 of the Code Municipale du Québec, the Mayor presents the highlights of the financial report and the auditor’s report for the 2021 fiscal year, as audited by the accounting firm Amyot Gélinas.
In this regards, the Mayor confirms that the Municipalité d’Ivry-sur-le-Lac ended the year 2021 with excellent financial results. There are operating revenues of $2,488,711, operating expenses of $2,131,017, reconciling items for tax purposes of $52,178 to end with the budget surplus of $305,516 for the year 2021.
It must be considered that the Municipalité d’Ivry-sur-le-Lac has unavoidable obligations and non-discussable quotas, such as:
- RCM’s share;
- Sûreté du Québec;
- Residual waste management;
- Long-term debt management;
- Public works and snow removal management;
- Salaries of employees and elected officials.
The balance of the unrestricted operating surplus as of December 31st, 2021 is $1,029,551.
The Municipality’s external auditors have audited the Municipality’s consolidated financial statements. In their opinion, with the exception of the fact that the Municipality accounts for its grant revenues in accordance with the position prescribed by the Government of Quebec as recommended by the MAMH, and that they are of the opinion that this approach undervalues the grants receivable in the Municipality’s statement of financial position, the consolidated financial statements give, in all material respects, a true and fair view of the Municipality’s financial position as at December 31, 2021, and of the results of its operations, changes in its net financial assets (net debt) and its cash flows for the year then ended, in accordance with Canadian public sector accounting standards.
In conclusion, the financial report, as of December 31st, 2020, shows that Ivry-sur-le-Lac is in very good financial health.
