In January 2016, Antoine Labelle was recognized as a historical figure by the Quebec government, pursuant to the Cultural Heritage Act. The City of Saint-Jérôme had previously awarded a similar honour to its famous curé, in January 2014. The distinctions ensure that the curé’s legacy is safeguarded—immortalized, even.
