It was organized as a Plantation on March 12th, 1870 and named after the numerous Cyr’s who lived in the area, including Andre Cyr and his father Christopher who were the first Cyr’s in the Plantation.

Its population is approximately 84. Many of the established homesteads are still occupied by the original owners that dates back to the early 1950’s.

Potato Farming remains the predominate industry; other crops grown here include carrots, wheat, oats, beets and the famous blue potato owned by Lajoie Growers, a generational family owned company.”
