Beaupré is a ville in the Canadian province of Quebec, located in La Côte-de-Beaupré Regional County Municipality. The town is along the Saint Lawrence River and Route 138 at the mouth of the Sainte-Anne-du-Nord River.Mont-Sainte-Anne, the highest skiing station in the eastern part of Canada, is located in Beaupré. It also one of the town's major sport attractions.HistoryThe area has been inhabited since the beginning of the New France colony. In the 17th century, Breton sailors, when landing on the coastal plains, reputedly exclaimed: "Oh! le beau pré" ("Oh! the beautiful meadow"). The fused form of Beaupré has been in use since at least 1636 when the Beaupré Company was established. Its parish formed out of two of the oldest parishes of Quebec, Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré and Saint-Joachim. In 1928, the place was incorporated as the Parish Municipality of Notre-Dame-du-Rosaire but its name was changed to Beaupré that same year in order to avoid confusion with several other namesake parishes.In 1962, the parish municipality gained town status and became Ville de Beaupré.DemographicsPopulation trend: Population in 2011: 3439 Population in 2006: 3006 Population in 2001: 2761 Population in 1996: 2799 Population in 1991: 2676 Private dwellings occupied by usual residents: 1,425
