Living in Little Canada, MN

The Kaposia band of the Dakota tribe originally made their summer home in the Little Canada area because of the abundant local fishing and hunting resources. White French Canadian settlers first entered the region in the mid-1800s, and many of their descendents still live in town today. Benjamin Gervais was the first man to claim land here, and the city’s largest lake, Lake Gervais, was named to honor him. Although English is the official language of the United States, the first schools established in Little Canada taught classes in French. Local residents are proud of their Canadian heritage and celebrate each year during the Canadian Days celebration with their sister city of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Little Canada’s official symbol is an LC initial on a white fleur-de-lis with a red maple leaf in the background, reminiscent of the Canadian flag.
