How can we help?


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.

Municipal History

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 2019 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 2019 with excellent financial results.  There are operating revenues of $1,659,710, operating expenses of $1,374,125, reconciling items for tax purposes of $8,666 to end with the budget surplus of $276,919 for the year 2019

The surplus of 2019 was caused by the late tablings of the terms and conditions of the 2019-2013 Gas Tax Program and the Québec contribution (TECQ) in early summer 2019.  Elected officials therefore postponed the work planned for 2019 until summer of 2020 in order to launch the call for tenders in the winter 2020 to obtain better rates.

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, 2019 is $688,536. It is planned to allocate part of this surplus for road repair work.

The external auditors issued a standard auditor’s report, without reserve, on the financial statements for the year ended December 31st, 2019.

In conclusion, the financial report, as of December 31st, 2019, shows that Ivry-sur-le-Lac is in very good financial health.
