From 2006 throughout 2010 there has been much speculation about Sainte-Anne willing to merge into Sorel-Tracy to become a district (much like the former Saint-Pierre-de-Sorel and Tracy municipalities), however at the present time there has been no future talk about it at both city halls. The RCM planning administration is against the merger though, as it would compromise development potential in Sainte-Anne in favor of Sorel, since property evaluation services would be unified.
