Île-Bizard and the Lake of Two Mountains are on the left, Montreal Island on the bottom across the Rivière des Prairies, Laval Island to the right across the Rivière des Prairies, and the North Shore of Montreal across the Rivière des Mille Îles north of Laval Island

The Îles Laval are an island grouping in the Rivière des Prairies in southwestern Quebec, part of the Hochelaga Archipelago

Formerly an independent municipality (Les Îles-Laval), they became part of the city of Laval on August 6, 1965.

Geography[edit]

Located northeast of Île Bizard between the Island of Montreal and Île Jésus (Laval Island), they include Île Bigras, Île Pariseau, Île Verte and Île Ronde.[1]

Transportation[edit]

They are served by the Île Bigras station of the Deux-Montagnes commuter train line which crosses the islands. A road bridge links the islands with the Sainte-Dorothée district of Laval, on Île Jésus.

There is no bus service on the islands.
