Kirkland Real Estate Listings and Information
Kirkland is an on-island suburb on the Island of Montreal in southwestern Quebec, Canada. As of 2006, the population was 20,491. The average age in Kirkland, Quebec, is 40.2 years old. 79.8% of the population is aged 15 or older. It is named after Charles-Aimé Kirkland, a Quebec provincial politician.
It was originally incorporated as a municipality in 1961. On January 1, 2002, as part of the 2002–2006 municipal reorganization of Montreal, it was merged into the city of Montreal and became a borough. However, after a change of government and a 2004 referendum, it was re-constituted as an independent city on January 1, 2006.
Kirkland is primarily a residential community, with a commercial core, and an industrial park straddling the Trans-Canada Highway (Autoroute 40). In 1997, that portion of the Autoroute 40 was renamed to Félix-Leclerc Highway. The city is composed of mainly single-family residences, with some multi-unit facilities (apartments, town houses, and condos) available.
It is a full-service community, with a public works department, recreation department, engineering department, accounting, communications, human resources and administrative services operating for the welfare of its citizens.
The present mayor is now Michel Gibson, who has been a member of the Kirkland City Council since the mid-1970s.
