Sainte-Rose is a district in Laval, Quebec. It was incorporated as a village in 1850, and was a separate town until the municipal mergers on August 6, 1965 which amalgamated all the municipalities on Île Jésus into a single City of Laval.

Ste-Rose is best known for the parish church, erected 1740, which contains a Casavant Frères 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 between Boulevard Curé-Labelle and Autoroute 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.

Transportation[edit]

It is served by city bus lines operated by the Société de transport de Laval and by commuter trains of the Blainville-Saint-Jerome Line of the Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT). The Sainte-Rose station on that line is located just east of "Vieux Ste-Rose", on the border with Auteuil.

Geography[edit]

Sainte-Rose is delimited on the north by the Rivière des Mille-Îles, on the west by Fabreville, on the north-east by Auteuil, on the south-east by Vimont and on the south by Chomedey.[1]
