St. Fidele is a lovely town located in Charlevoix Region, about 12 miles drive from downtown of La Malbaie. It’s a former municipality which has merged with the Pointe-au-Pic, Riviere-Malbaie, Cap-a-l'Aigle and Sainte-Agnes to create the large La Malbaie City.
The town sits perched on a high plateau overlooking the St. Lawrence River. St. Fidele was founded in 1855. At that time the village included the communities of Saint-Raphaël de Cap-à-l'Aigle, Saint-Siméon and Saint-Firmin de Baie-Sainte-Catherine.
Today, it’s often cited as the home of the famous Fromagerie Saint-Fidele, a cheese factory founded in 1902. Its reputation lives on to our days.
