History of Estrie Sector
In 1956, the liaison couple brought from Paris the documents necessary for the formation and the life of a team; on August 7 they received the confirmation that the Montreal 1 team existed and that it was directly attached to Paris.
In 1958, there were already 6 teams in Montreal. In 1959, the management team (now the ERI) confirmed the existence of the Canada sector. In 1960, start of teams in Quebec.
1964: 16 teams in Montreal, 6 teams in Quebec, 4 teams in Hull-Ottawa and 6 in Sherbrooke.
1965: The Canada sector has 48 teams including teams not formally committed. The sector team is therefore asking the management team to make the Canada sector a region. After a rather large exchange of correspondence, the management team (Paris) agreed to create the Canada Region in April 1966. The first regional team was created in 1970 because before that the couple responsible for the Region depended on the couple liaison of the management team in Paris. In the absence of participants, the Hull-Ottawa sector ceased operations in 1976.
In 1977, the Canada Region had 13 teams in Montreal, 11 in Sherbrooke and 10 in Quebec City.
Finally, when celebrating the 30th anniversary of Teams in Canada in 1986, there were 5 teams in Montreal, 9 in Quebec City, 18 in Sherbrooke and 8 in Eastern Townships.
