Montreal-South (French: Montréal-Sud) was a suburb of Montréal located on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River founded in 1906.  Montreal-South was created from land of the Saint-Antoine-de-Longueuil parish. Originally a village in its first five years, Montreal-South gained the status of city in 1911.
Early in its existence, its population was split between French-speaking Roman Catholics and English-speaking Protestants. This changed by the middle of the century, as the Francophones became the overwhelming majority.
Merger with Longueuil and aftermath
On January 28, 1961, the city of Montreal-South merged with the city of Longueuil, keeping the latter's name. After Montreal-South was dissolved, its former territory underwent a major urban renewal that began in the mid-1960s.
Place Charles-LeMoyne, sometimes considered to be Downtown Longueuil, is in the former territory of Montreal-South.
It is the location of the Longueuil bus terminus and Longueuil-Université-de-Sherbrooke metro station. Most of Longueuil's high-rise residential and office buildings are located in this area, including 99 Place Charles-LeMoyne, which is 30 stories tall, and is the tallest building in Greater Montreal off the Island of Montreal.
There is also a hotel on de Sérigny street. Since 1972, the hotel has carried the banners Holiday Inn, Ramada, Radisson and now Sandman. Although it is currently in the hands of the Sandman Inn Group, it had been a Holiday Inn hotel for most of its existence.
Place Charles-LeMoyne is surrounded by major highways, Autoroute 20/Route 132 near the river in the north, the entrance ramp of Jacques-Cartier Bridge to the west, and Taschereau Boulevard to the south and east.
Also located within the former municipal boundaries of Montreal-South is Place Longueuil, which is located just outside of Downtown Longueuil.
Place Longueuil was the first shopping mall in Longueuil and is now the largest mall within city limits. Place Longueuil lies right next to Old Longueuil and many locals consider the mall as part of this neighborhood.
