The municipality of Chelsea has developed thanks to the timber trade just like the vast majority of the Outaouais due to the poverty of arable soils which does not allow the cultivation of land. In 1840, the Gilmour mills moved to Chelsea Falls, which was a key element in the development of the municipality.

In addition, the fact that Chelsea is located between the municipalities of Hull and Wakefield also plays in its favor for its development during the 19th century. Today, Chelsea’s population is different from the rest of the Outaouais as it is young, more educated than the rest of the region, with very high average income and low unemployment.
