CODERRE – CANADA150

* Please BYOP * You are looking for a small bison tube.

Coderre is one of the many towns in southern Saskatchewan established by Francophone settlers.

In 1910, a number of families from Quebec settled at the location that would become Coderre, thanks to  Catholic colonizing missionaries. The village was named in honor of Eudore Coderre, its first postmaster.

One of the best-known people from Coderre is undoubtedly Lionel Coderre, MLA and Minister in the Thatcher Cabinet from 1964 to 1971.

Today, a hundred people still reside in the Coderre region, but there is not much left of the institutions that used to be there.


* S'il vous plaît, apportez votre crayon * Vous cherchez un ptit tube noir.

Coderre fait partie des nombreuses municipalités du Sud de la Saskatchewan établies par les colons francophones.

En 1910, plusieurs familles originaires du Québec s’installent à l’endroit qui deviendra Coderre, grâce aux missionnaires colonisateurs catholiques. Le village sera nommé en l’honneur d’Eudore Coderre, premier maître de poste.

Une des personnes les plus connues de Coderre est sans aucun doute Lionel Coderre, député provincial et ministre dans le cabinet Thatcher de 1964 à 1971.

Aujourd’hui, une centaine de personnes résident toujours dans la région de Coderre, mais il ne reste plus grand-chose des institutions autrefois en place.
