Montréal-Nord (Montreal North) is a borough within the city of Montreal, Canada. It consists entirely of the former city of Montreal North on the Island of Montreal in southwestern Quebec. It was amalgamated into the City of Montreal on January 1, 2002.

Around the start of the 21st century, Montreal North developed a reputation as being one of Montreal's most dangerous boroughs, along with Hochelaga-Maisonneuve. The area contains a sizable community living below the poverty line, though it also has middle-class and upper-middle-class residences. It is also home to one of Canada's largest Haitian communities.

The borough is an oblong municipal division situated along the Rivière des Prairies, in the northeastern part of the island.

It is bordered to the west by Ahuntsic-Cartierville, to the southwest by Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension, to the south by St. Leonard, at the southeast corner by Anjou, and to the east by Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles. The borough counts 29 parks and leisure structures].[4]

Major thoroughfares in Montreal North include St. Michel Blvd., Pie IX Blvd. (Autoroute 25), Lacordaire Blvd., Langelier Blvd., Leger Blvd., and Henri Bourassa Blvd. The Pie IX Bridge connects Montreal North to the Laval district of Saint-Vincent-de-Paul.

It has an area of 11.07 km2 and a population of 83,911.


Federal and provincial elections[edit]

The borough is located almost entirely in the federal riding of Bourassa, except for a tiny southeastern corner in Honore Mercier.

The provincial electoral district of Bourassa Sauve is coterminous with the borough except for a northwestern section in the electoral district of Maurice Richard.

Elementary schools and High schools[edit]

The Commission scolaire de la Pointe-de-l'Île (CSPÎ) operates French language public schools. Public high schools that are part of this school board in this borough are Calixa-Lavallée High School and Henri Bourassa High School.[6] There is also the Le Prélude program.[7] There are 14 French language elementary schools in Montreal North.[8]

The English Montreal School Board operates the following English language public schools within Montreal North:

Prior to 1998, the Montreal Catholic School Commission and the Protestant School Board of Greater Montreal ran all the English language public schools located in Montreal. At that time, public schools were segregated along religious lines instead of the current linguistic lines.

Public libraries[edit]

The borough has four libraries within the Montreal Public Libraries Network: Belleville, Bibliotheque de la Maison culturelle et communautaire, Charleroi, and Henri Bourassa.[12]
