Charlemagne, Quebec


Charlemagne (pronounced [ʃaʁləmaɲ]) is a city in the Province of Québec, Canada, on the north shore of the Rivière des Prairies, 24 kilometres (15 mi) northeast of the city of Montréal’s downtown core. As of 2021, the population was 6,302.

Charlemagne is, famously, the birthplace and childhood hometown of world-famous singer Céline Dion; the town council named one of its main streets after her without the recognition of a Québec commission. Additionally, the town erected a sculpture on Dion's behalf. Charlemagne is also the birthplace of politician Camille Laurin. In 2022, Charlemagne became known for the Santos Controversy that still takes place to this day.
