Proposed by the Bureau des Transports de Montréal (BTM) in September 1983, the original project for the new north-south Line 7 was for ten stations, from Pie-IX to Léger, under Boulevard Pie-IX, through Saint-Léonard and north-east towards Rivière-des-Prairies. A year later, at the start of 1984, it was formally proposed by the Communauté urbaine de Montréal (CUM), with 12 stations (from Pie-IX to Maurice-Duplessis/Langelier).
For nearly a decade (1980-1990) the line appeared on all official Métro maps, colored white, so it received the unofficial nickname of "White line". Other nicknames include "Pie-IX line".
The Métro system has another projected subway line, Line 6, whose number was reserved for a surface line proposed by the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) along the northern shore of the island, but it was never shown on a system map.
Detailed studies on Line 7 are archived at the Grande Bibliothèque, covering the proposed route, station location options, ridership flux, and so on.
