Learn more about the heritage buildings where former Canadian Prime Minister Louis Stephen St. Laurent, his family, fellow citizens and collaborators frequented.


Louis S. St. Laurent was a model pupil at the Seminary and when he entered the Faculty of Law at Laval University in 1902, he became a brilliant student who fully mastered the intricacies of both the French Civil Code and British Common Law. He believed that each was useful and that they should be allowed to co-exist.
