Westmount

Green spaces and quality of life

From the moment the first settlers settled there, in the middle of the 17th century, this territory is known by many names, including La Petite Montagne, Notre-Dame-de-Grace and Côte-Saint-Antoine. In 1699, first settlers lived on a farm, the Hurtubise House3.

In 1873, when the village nucleus was formed south of the sector, the Saint-Antoine coast was incorporated under the name of village of the Saint-Antoine coast.

The choice of Westmount, which began in 1895, reflects the location of the city, on the southwest flank of Mount Royal, and the presence of a large Protestant Anglophone population, often of Scottish origin. .
