Antoine (Gerain) Gérin-Lajoie is Notable.

Antoine was born on 4 August 1824, and was baptized the same day in Yamachiche. He was the son of Antoine Gérain dit Lajoie [signed Gerain dit Lajöie] and Amable Gélinas.[1]

In Toronto he met Étienne Parent and a firm friendship developed between the two men. Parent had been under-secretary of the Province of Canada since 1847 and, having spent the winter of 1855–56 alone, decided to bring his family to Toronto in May. They lived in the same boarding-house as Gérin-Lajoie, who met the eldest of Parent’s three daughters, Joséphine-Henriette, and on 26 Oct. 1858 married her in St Michael’s Cathedral, Toronto.
