Beaconsfield Real Estate Listings and Information
It is located on the north shore of Lake Saint-Louis and is bordered on the west by Baie-D'Urfé, on the north by Kirkland and on the east by Pointe-Claire. It was incorporated in 1910 and is named in honour of Benjamin Disraeli, Lord Beaconsfield, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in the 1860s and 1870s and close confidant of Queen Victoria. It is part of Greater Montreal locally referred to as the West Island.
As part of the 2002–2006 municipal reorganization of Montreal, Beaconsfield was merged into the city of Montreal on January 1, 2002, joining with neighbouring Baie-D'Urfé to create the borough of Beaconsfield–Baie-D'Urfé. After a change of government and a 2004 referendum, both of them voted to demerge and were reconstituted as independent cities on January 1, 2006. However, they remain part of the urban agglomeration of Montreal.
The population of Beaconsfield is mostly English-speaking. Most buildings in Beaconsfield are single-family homes, with some townhouses and Montreal-style apartment buildings. It may be characterized as a bedroom community. Beaconsfield is also home to a recreation centre that contains a pool, an ice rink and a gym.
A wooded area, Angell Woods, occupies much of western Beaconsfield, and is the subject of a campaign to preserve it permanently as a green space.
The current mayor of Beaconsfield is Georges Bourelle. The city is served by six councilors.
- David Pelletier (District 1)
- Karen Messier (District 2)
- Wade Staddon (District 3)
- Pierre Demers (District 4)
- Roger Moss (District 5)
- Peggy Alexopolous (District 6)
The last Municipal Election was held on November 3, 2013, with all six council seats and the mayoralty being contested. Prior to this election, David Pollack had been the incumbent mayor - he chose not to run for a second term.
The mayoral candidates for the 2013 municipal elections were: James Bonnell, Georges Bourelle, Hela Labene and Rhonda Massad. Mr. Bourelle defeated Mrs. Massad, an incumbent city councillor, in a close race, with the other two candidates trailing much further behind.
