On July 24, 2002, the then-township of Newport was amalgamated into the city of Cookshire-Eaton as part of the early 2000s municipal reorganization in Quebec. After a referendum, Newport de-merged and became an independent municipality on January 1, 2006. However, it remains part of the urban agglomeration of Cookshire-Eaton.
