FORGET – CANADA150

*PLEASE BYOP*

The town of Forget owes its name to Amédée-Emmanuel Forget, a Francophone who was the first Lieutenant Governor of the Province of Saskatchewan.

The first settlers arrived in the region around 1892. Because this settlement area was managed by Abbé Jean-Isidore Gaire, it was natural for several French, Belgian, and French Canadian families to settle there.

The post office was established in 1897 and the Fathers of Salette built the first church in 1899. By 1920, Forget was one of the most flourishing villages in the region.

Today, the community of Forget has about hundred of residents who are warm in spirit and proud of their local industry.

*S'il vous plaît, apportez votre crayon*

La ville de Forget doit son patronyme à Amédée-Emmanuel Forget, un francophone qui fut le premier lieutenant-gouverneur de la province de la Saskatchewan.

Les premiers colons sont arrivés dans la région vers 1892. Comme ce territoire de colonisation était géré par l’abbé Jean-Isidore Gaire, il fut naturel pour plusieurs familles d’origine canadienne française, belge ou française de s’y installer.

Le bureau de poste fut établi en 1897 et les Pères de la Salette construisirent la première église en 1899. Vers 1920, Forget était un des villages les plus florissants de la région.

Aujourd’hui, la communauté de Forget compte une centaine d’habitants à l’esprit chaleureux et fiers de de leur industrie locale.
