Roc-d’Or was not incorporated and civil and religious authorities refused to build any school or church. The lack of a church did not cause much of a stir, but having no school did. In the first years, a grant and fundraising evenings did support a school in the squatters’ village. But, in 1938, the new Malartic school board obliged the Roc-d’Or children to go to school in Malartic.
