Fairview Pointe-Claire (corporately styled as "CF Fairview Pointe-Claire"), also known as Fairview Centre (or Centre Fairview in French), or Fairview, is one of the biggest super regional shopping malls on the island of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It has about 1,000,000 square feet (92,900 m2) spread on two levels of shopping space. It is located in the city of Pointe-Claire at the intersection of Trans-Canada Highway and Saint-Jean Boulevard. Fairview Pointe-Claire is jointly owned at 50% by Cadillac Fairview and 50% by Ivanhoe Cambridge; the former is also the manager of the mall. Fairview Pointe-Claire is the oldest of Cadillac Fairview's self-branded "four Fashion centres" that also include the Carrefour Laval, Les Promenades Saint-Bruno and Les Galeries d'Anjou. The major tenants are Hudson's Bay, Sears, Pharmaprix, Home Outfitters, Winners, HomeSense, Sports Experts/Atmosphere and Best Buy.


More than 200 stores are in the mall.[1]


  • 1965: Fairview Corporation inaugurates the mall with Simpson's, Steinberg's, Eaton's, Pascal's, and some 70 other stores. Notable tenants include Ogilvy's and Woolworth's. Fairview Pointe-Claire is a single level mall; only anchors Simpson's, Eaton's and Pascal's have two floors. Sam Steinberg's Ivanhoe Corporation is a shareholder of the mall. Simpson's purchases a replica of Michelangelo's Statue of David and installs it in the mall's hallway.[2]
  • 1984: Fairview Pointe-Claire is extensively renovated as a two-level shopping mall modelled after sister mall Les Promenades Saint-Bruno. Simpson and Eaton's each add a third floor to their store; the adding of an extra floor does not necessitate any change to the outdoor architectures of Simpson and Eaton's because both stores were designed in 1965 to house three floors. A food court is added. A new the Bay store is supposed to open in the mall but the project is cancelled.
  • 1989: Simpsons becomes the Bay.
  • 1991: Pascal closes.
  • 1992: Steinberg is renamed as Metro. A new Sears is built near CIBC's former space. Adventure Electronics occupies the old Pascal space, but only its first floor. The former indoor entrance for Pascal, located exclusively on the first floor (in the Eaton's mall wing), was not reserved for Adventure Electronics and was instead diluted into boutiques space.
  • 1996: Metro rebrands as Super C
  • 1998: Adventure Electronics closes.
  • 1999: Eaton closes in late August after a closing sale.
  • 2000: Sears moves to Eaton's former space while Super C closes down.
  • 2001: Winners, HomeSense, Renaud-Bray, Old Navy, and Sports Experts/Atmosphere, and Starbucks Coffee open up into Sears' original location.
  • 2002: Home Outfitters opens in Super C's former space.
  • 2004: Former Pascal/Adventure building is demolished after years of being occupied by short-lived factory outlets since Adventure Electronics' closing in 1998.
  • 2005: a new Best Buy takes place of the former Pascal/Adventure building. Like Adventure Electronics, Best Buy can only be accessed from outdoors.
