The borough of Outremont is committed to its quality of life and protects its green spaces, flowered alleys and tree-lined streets as much as it takes care to preserve the aesthetics and architectural identity of the neighbourhood's chic homes. Quebec families, French expatriates and Hasidic Jews mix and mingle in the parks, on the commercial streets and in the many activities of the neighbourhood.
Living in Westmount means enjoying the pleasure of living in peace and quiet just a stone's throw from downtown and on the slopes of Mount Royal, offering you the advantage of access to the city's tall towers, stores, restaurants and museums as well as the attraction of strolling through the wooded area of Mount Royal.
Rosemont - La Petite Patrie
The Rosemont - La Petite Patrie borough never ceases to attract epicureans in search of culinary flavors, unusual discoveries, and freedom on foot or by bike. Little Italy adds all kinds of Italian accents to this territory where it's good to live, mingle and move around.
The borough of Mount Royal is charming because of the aesthetics of its vast residential homes and the peacefulness of its surroundings and green spaces. Its privileged population takes advantage of the city's seclusion as well as the quick access by car to the major highways. Basically, like the best of both worlds…
Ville-Marie (Downtown and Old Port)
Ville-Marie is the pulsating heart of Montreal and the open stage for the biggest festivals. The soul of the place is the entertainment district where music from all over the world vibrates, where art emerges from everywhere for the greatest pleasure of music lovers, dancers and art lovers. The Old Port is the other great attraction of this district with its lively, innovative and festive energy.
Côte-Des-Neiges - Notre-Dame-de-Grâce
A cosmopolitan neighbourhood, the Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough pays tribute to Montreal's reputation as a multi-ethnic city. Accents and flavors mingle in this neighborhood known for its affordable housing.
Verdun - L’Île des Sœurs (Nuns' Island)
L’Île des Sœurs (Nuns' Island), located in the middle of the St. Lawrence River, is a green oasis with a cosmopolitan population of 21,200 (2021 census). Real estate growth is keeping pace with population growth, with the construction of tall, luxurious towers in the Pointe Nord and Pointe Sud areas and on Chemin du Golf. Verdun, on the other hand, retains the identity of a more traditional neighbourhood, with its red brick triplexes and its "native" Quebec population.
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
The Plateau Mont-Royal is THE relaxed neighborhood par excellence that attracts a population of European origin, drawn by the typical charm of this historic neighborhood. The rows of plex buildings with their colorful walls and spiral staircases are home to a whole population of families, self-entrepreneurs, creative minds, students and outdoor enthusiasts…
Dorval – L’île-Dorval
Renowned for its Montreal-Trudeau International Airport, Dorval has all kinds of unsuspected attractions: lakeside trails, marina, islands, water races, skating rinks, sports fields... Large homes on large lots make it a family-friendly area.
Hampstead is a small, affluent town of 7,300 people and is one of the only Jewish-majority towns in Canada. It is distinguished by its individual residences surrounded by vast gardens, a haven of greenery, trees and shrubs. Hence the name "garden city", based on the model devised in England at the end of the 19th century. A design and a resourcefulness carefully cultivated to enhance the quality of urban life. An architectural concern that extends to the construction materials and quality control.
The borough is particularly large and has many neighbourhoods: Côte-Saint-Paul, Little Burgundy and Ville-Émard, three of which date back to the 17th century (Griffintown, Saint-Henri and Pointe Saint-Charles). A place of effervescence, the borough attracts ideas and desires. In the midst of a real estate boom, it attracts residents with a wide variety of tastes and aspirations.
The Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighborhood - or "Hochelag" to its friends - is the kind of contrasting neighborhood that attracts or repels by its social disparity. Marked by its working class past, it keeps the traces of a certain social margin while attracting young professionals in search of housing with a high potential. Stretching over 25 kilometers, it has a population of more than 140,000 inhabitants.
From lakeside living, to cultural and outdoor activities, to the aesthetics of its historic buildings, to its select yacht and golf clubs, Pointe-Claire offers an exceptionally gentle quality of life.
A cosmopolitan borough of some 104,000 residents, Saint-Laurent is made up of a wide variety of neighborhoods with different styles of housing, ranging from high-rise apartments to luxurious single-family homes, as well as condos for every budget. Some neighbourhoods, such as Bois Franc, also offer residents thriving commercial spaces.
Saint-Léonard has a strong Italian presence. It is a family-friendly neighbourhood where families can enjoy a wide range of recreational and sports activities right outside of one of the many schools, as well as explore the old fossils of the Caverne de Saint-Léonard.
West Island of Montreal
The West Island of Montreal - better known to its predominantly English-speaking population as the "West Island" - covers the entire western third of the Island of Montreal, including the municipalities of Baie D'Urfé, Beaconsfield, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Kirkland, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and Senneville. All of these cities and villages are located along the shores of Lake Saint-Louis, the Ottawa River and the Des Prairies River.
