On 27 May 1701, he was one of 42 men hired by Sieur Jean Bochard, the chief clerk of the Company of Canada at Montréal, as a voyageur to travel to Détroit. These men traveled with Antoine de Lamothe Cadillac and established the permanent settlement at Détroit. PLAQUE The convoy arrived at their destination on 24 July 1701. According to the contract signed by Désautels, the voyagers were not allowed to trade for profit. Those hired would be fed at the expense of the King "according to the usual custom for voyageurs" and they would be paid for "each year of service beginning the 1st day of June next year...", 300 livres of French money "which totals 400 livres du pays". (Article: "Marché pour le detroit… 27 mai 1701, Adhémar, notaire royal") This seems to indicate that they were paid 100 livres at the onset of their voyage. At the same time, it is apparent that Pierre returned to his family in Montréal no later than October/November 1702 because his wife gave birth to their third child on 3 August 1703.
On 10 July 1703, he was one of 47 men hired by the same company to go to Lake Erie for one year. Upon his return to Montréal, he was to receive wages of 400 livres in merchandise from the Bureau des Pelleteries.
Aug 28, 1704, Pierre Desautels and 59 others were hired by the same company to travel to Fort Lepont Chartrain (Fort Ponchartrain) at Détroit. The wages were 200 livres in the form of letters of exchange and double that if he stayed for the winter. Assuming that he did travel to Détroit shortly after being hired, we can assume that he did not stay for the entire winter since his daughter, Marie-Françoise, was born on 14 July 1705.
