Le Sud-Ouest

Some facts and figures

Living environment

Living in Borough of Sud-Ouest means being close to downtown without feeling crowded. It’s a pleasant urban environment dotted with green spaces close to the majestic Lachine Canal. The borough encompasses some of Montréal’s most longstanding neighbourhoods, including Saint-Henri, Pointe-Saint-Charles, Griffintown, Little Burgundy, Ville Émard, and Côte Saint-Paul. These are neighbourhoods with history and distinctive personalities, as can be seen in their noble Victorian homes, vast industrial factories, and workers’ houses. Several residential developments have sprouted throughout the borough as old factories and vacant lots have been converted to residential and commercial use, including lofts, stylish office space, and large family homes, which has resulted in revitalizing the neighbourhoods of southwest Montréal.
