Long Description:
"In 1912, the Mission St-Jean Baptiste de Falher was opened 5 km from the current location. When the railway came to the area in 1915, the settlement was named after Father Constant Falher, a Roman Catholic Oblate missionary who was born in the town of Josselin Brittany, France in 1863 and came to Canada in 1887 arriving at Grouard in 1889. He was known for his ability to speak the Cree Language and referred to the area around Falher as the "Happy Hunting Ground" of the Indians. At that time there were a large number of fox in the area.

The colony then divided into what is known as the Village of Donnelly and the Town of Falher. In 1919 the Falher consolidated school district No. 69 and the parish Ste. Anne were established."
