On January 1, 2002, all of the above except Waterville amalgamated into the newly expanded City of Sherbooke, as part of the 2001–2002 municipal reorganization in Quebec. Waterville remained independent and moved to Coaticook Regional County Municipality.
The City of Bromptonville and the Township of Brompton joined Sherbrooke Regional County Municipality on June 12, 1996; prior to that date, they had both been part of Le Val-Saint-François Regional County Municipality. The two of them merged to become the new City of Bromptonville on December 30, 1998; that city merged into the new City of Sherbrooke on January 1, 2002 and became the borough of Brompton (however, a part of the former city was annexed to Stoke instead).
