I think Emilien may have been the son of Francois Bombardier & Flavie Poirier. I think he may have been born/grew up in Napierville, Quebec, and that his mother died in 1860. There is a burial record for her in the Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967:

Flavie Poirier, d. 10 May, bur 12 May 1860 Napierville St-Cyprien, Quebec, age 25, wife of Francois Bombardier.

This may be the family in 1861:

His father remarried by 1871 to Sophie Castagne:
