Sainte-Rose is a neighbourhood in Laval. It was incorporated as a village in1850, and was a separate town until the municipal mergers on August 6, 1965 which amalgamated all the municipalities on Île Jesus into a single City of Laval.
Ste-Rose is best known for the parish church, erected 1740, which contains a Casavant organ and hosts numerous concerts every year, and for "Vieux Ste-Rose", a charming area known for its attractive old houses and fine restaurants. Other districts that are also part of Sainte-Rose are Champenois (located betweenBoulevard Curé-Labelle andAutoroute 15, to the west of "Vieux Ste-Rose") and Champfleury, also known as Des Oiseaux (after the name of the district's main thoroughfare), to the south, near the border with Chomedey.
The Sainte-Rose-de-Lima Church was built between 1852 and 1856, from the plans of Victor Bourgeau, a Montréal architect. Bourgeau, who was a very productive architect in the 1850s, also drew the plans for the Cathédrale Marie-Reine-du-Monde (once the Cathédrale Saint-Jacques-le-Majeur) and the inside decoration of the Notre-Dame Basilica, which are both located in Montréal. The Sainte-Rose-de-Lima Church, with its beauty, its remarkable furniture and its two wooden statues made by Philippe Liébert, has become a cultural good in 1974, a title given by the foreign affairs ministry.
