A pro-cathedral was built prior to the request of Bishop Jean-Charles Prince of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saint-Hyacinthe, but the building was not solid. During the 1870s, the bishop had to move to Saint-Mathieu-de-Beloeil.
The construction of the current building was ordained by Bishop Louis-Zéphirin Moreau. Its architect is Adolphe Lévesque, who fulfilled a contract for $50,000. It was dedicated in honour of St. Hyacinth (Saint Hyacinthe), confessor Dominican who died in 1257.
