The Municipality

The parish municipality of Saint-Frédéric (1,044 inhabitants in 2018; 7,230 ha) is located 30 km north-west of Beauceville.

Saint-Frédéric was originally part of the domain of Saint-Joseph, granted in 1736 to François-Pierre Rigaud de Vaudreuil, who swapped it the next year with his father-in-law, Joseph Fleury de la Gorgendière.
Urbain Delisle announced in 1848 that he would build a saw and flour mill, which would cause an increase of the local population. Accordingly, a request of parish erection was sent to the Archbishopric of Quebec. Archbishop Turgeon signed on 7 July 1851 the Decree erecting the parish of Saint-Frédéric, named for Frédéric Caron, parish priest of Saint-Joseph-de-Beauce and first parish priest of Saint-Frédéric until 1856.
Saint-Frédéric's territory was subsequently decreased by the separation of Tring-Jonction, Saint-Séverin, Saint-Jules, and East Brougthon.

The coat of arms of Saint-Frédéric is "Azure a saltire or inescutcheon gules a handshake proper cantonned in chief by hills and trees in base by three fleurs-de-lis argent dexter by wheat spikes sinister by a peregrine falcon. The shield surrounded by maple leaves gules. The shield surmounted by a scroll or inscribed 'SAINT-FRÉDÉRIC" in letters sable. Beneath the shield a scroll or inscribed 'FORTS PAR L'UNITÉ" in letters sable."

The handshake refers to the motto, "Strong Through Unity".
The fleurs-de-lis are taken from the arms of Saint-Joseph-de-Beauce, the origin of most early colonists in Saint-Frédéric.
The hills and trees recall the heights and natural resources of the territory.
The spikes represent agriculture.
The peregrine falcon is a symbol of tenacity, since the species is no longer endangered.
The leaves recall that sugar maples are widely exploited in Saint-Frédéric.
