Eulalie Durocher, known by her religious name Mother Marie-Rose and later Blessed Marie-Rose Durocher, is one of 50 remarkable women honored by the Quebec Toponymy Commission. This initial list of 50 women, depicted on an interactive map, features more than 500 official place names paying tribute to them.

The Commission used the following criteria to portray diverse representatives of Quebec society:

  1. Pioneers or leading figures in various fields of activity.
  2. Historical or popular figures who have left their mark on the collective imagination.
  3. A representation of Quebec society as a whole.
  4. A desire for women from all eras to be represented.
  5. Women born or adopted in Quebec.

This interactive map, launched on International Women’s Rights Day on 8 March, will be enhanced over time to highlight the contribution of as many women as possible. The Commission recalled that there are currently nearly 4,500 official place names associated with a woman.

The interactive map lists ten places designated with the name Eulalie Durocher. We invite you to read the places and names of organizations on the table below.
