The primary goal of the Association is to « Allow today’s Demers families to get to know each other and to fraternise ». We wish to reaffirm this goal and, through the available Medias, reinforce a sense of pride and belonging to this great name by posting exploits, events and projects concerning Demers'.

The "rejuvenation" of our Board of Directors is well underway and we are counting on you (the X generation) to maintain the momentum. Beyond genealogy and history, we wish to seduce you by bringing our Association more in line with your generation. You are the ones who can make this happen.

2019 also marks the 375th anniversary of our arrival in New France. We will highlight the event at our annual rally which will be held on July 6th and 7th once again in St-Romuald at the Juvénat Notre Dame located on the land granted to Jean in 1666.   For information about this event, I invite to view the 'Activities' section then 'Projects' under 'Categories' you will find the invitation, the meeting schedule and registration form. If you want more details, write to us at

We’ve been talking for a few years about the publication of a new book on the Demers. He are currently in production and will it be available for the July rally. For informations, click here
