About Carleton-sur-Mer

The town is located on the south shore of the Baie des Chaleurs, a bay in eastern Quebec. It is surrounded by mountains and hills, including Mount Carleton (elevation: ), which overlooks the town from its north side. The mountain was named after Guy Carleton, 1st Baron Dorchester (1724–1808), who served as Governor General of British North America and later as Lord Lieutenant-General of Ireland. The territory was first settled by Europeans in 1785 when François-Xavier Garneau established a trading post at this location for his business activities with First Nations people; he also built an inn to accommodate travellers along what would become known as "the King's Highway". In 1832 it became part of Lower Canada when that province was split into Upper Canada and Lower Canada; then in 1867 it became part of Quebec following Confederation.
