HistoryEdit

In 1891, the parish of Saint-Aimé-du-Lac was founded. In 1907, the post office opened, named Lac-des-Îles after the nearby Lake of Islands (Lac des Îles).[1]

In 1917, the municipality was formed as the United Township Municipality of Wabassee-Dudley-et-Bouthillier-Partie-Nord-Est, and renamed in 1942 to Dudley-et-Bouthillier-Partie-Nord-Est. In 1953, it became the Municipality of Saint-Aimé-du-Lac-des-Îles.[1]

From January 8, 2003, to January 1, 2006, the municipality was amalgamated into the Town of Mont-Laurier.[1]
