The Town of Brome Lake (officially Lac-Brome[1]), is located in the Brome-Missisquoi Regional County Municipality of the Montérégie administrative region of Quebec, Canada. The population as of the Canada 2011 Census was 5,609.

 

Historically, the town was situated in Brome County in Quebec's Eastern Townships. Seven villages surrounding the lake by the same name, Brome Lake — Bondville, East Hill, Foster, Fulford, Knowlton, Iron Hill and West Brome — were amalgamated in 1971 to create the Town of Brome Lake. Tourism is also a major industry in the village of Knowlton because of skiing in the winter, lake activities in summer, and fall colours which peak in early October
