Forestry is no longer the main source of employment on the Island, and now the main source is agriculture, and the business of tourism is on the rise. Covering 185.87 km2 (2006 Census), L’Isle-aux-Allumettes is a land rich in natural beauty and resources but lacking economic opportunity. The population is very stable, with 1,260 residents reporting they have resided at the same address as one year ago (2006 Census) and 1,055 residents lived at the same address five years ago.
