Assomption station (formally de L'Assomption) is a Montreal Metro station in the borough of Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Montreal, Quebec. It is operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) and serves the Green Line. It is in the district of Mercier-Ouest. The station opened some time after 6 June, 1976 , as part of the extension of the Green Line to Honoré-Beaugrand.
Designed by Duplessis and Labelle, it is a normal side platform station built partially in tunnel, with access through a deep open cut leading to the single entrance. Murals by Guy Montpetit are exhibited in the entrance building and the hallways to the stairwell.
Origin of the name
This station (formerly named L'Assomption, a name still seen on the station's nameplates) is named for boul. de l'Assomption, so named in 1951 to commemorate Pope Pius XII's confirmation of the dogma of the Assumption of Mary in his 1950 apostolic constitution Munificentissimus Deus.
