The Delaurier name became a reality sometime after 1890 and resulted from several factors, all occurring around the turn of the 20th century. We owe credit for having this name to a Swiss immigrant born in the French speaking area of Switzerland. He traveled to Laurier, MB seeking work and on Dec 26, 1899 he married a 20-year old settler, Aglaé Boisvert, of the same town. Aglaé had moved from Quebec to Laurier with her family who had moved westward in Canada for economic reasons. Below are animated photos of these two people.
