DELMAS – CANADA150

*Please BYOP* You are looking for a nano magnetic container.

Delmas owes its name to the Francophone Catholic priest, Henri Delmas. Born in the hamlet of Boyne in France, he was sent to Canada in June 1892. In 1895, he began his adventure in Western Canada, a journey that took him to such places as Duck Lake and Île-à-la-Crosse.

The name Delmas is derived from the word mas, an isolated farm or farmhouse in the south of France. Delmas means "from a mas".

Most of the people living in the small hamlet of Delmas are of Francophone heritage.  The area's economy is based on agriculture.

Delmas doit son nom au père catholique-francophone Henri Delmas. Originaire du hameau de Boyne en France, il fut envoyé au Canada en juin 1892. En 1895, il entame son périple dans l’ouest canadien qui l’amènera entre autres à Duck Lake et l’Île-à-la-crosse.

Le nom Delmas est une variante de Mas et qui signifie « celui qui habitait un mas ». Le terme Mas désigne un domaine agricole ayant en son centre une maison d’habitation.

Delmas est un petit hameau où la majorité des descendants sont d’origine francophone. L’économie de la région tourne autour des activités agricoles.
