CITY GUIDE
LAVAL, QUEBEC

Laval is a city that happens to also be the largest suburb of Montreal, being located on Ile Jesus (“Jesus Island” in English) to the north of the Island of Montreal. It has a population of roughly 400,000 inhabitants and takes up approximately 265 square kilometres of land.

This Montreal suburb is well-known amongst locals for being one of the areas in Montreal that is almost exclusively francophone. It also appears to experience population growth rates ranging between 5-10% every time a nation-wide census is conducted.

There is no question that Laval’s economy is primarily driven by the pharmaceutical industry.

This is evidenced by the several research laboratories in its vicinity and the major buildings occupied by industry giants such as Vertex, Merck, and Pfizer.

With that being said, it also benefits greatly from the technology, agriculture, and retail sectors. With a total of 200,000+ employed by these various sectors, there are an abundant number of job opportunities for newcomers.

Over the years, Laval has been praised as a shining example of a city that continues to experience above average growth on an annual basis. This is partly thanks to a strong government framework that has a long-standing history of strong budgetary performance.

The unemployment rates and labour participation rates that are respectively below and above the averages across the province confirm these statements.

Neighbourhoods

Neighbourhoods

Laval is not officially divided up into sections, but it can generally be considered to consist of three major areas: Alfred-Pellan (formerly Laval East), Marc-Aurele-Fortin (also known as Laval Central), and Laval-Les Iles (also known as Laval West). Each of these major areas contains several districts of Laval that possess their own unique characteristics. In part, this is what allows these three areas to be viewed as separate from one another.

Laval-Iles

Laval-Iles is home to the neighbourhoods of Iles Laval, Laval-Ouest, Saint-Dorothee, Laval-sur-le-Lac, Chomedey, and Fabreville. This area is closest to the small area near the Riviere des Prairies that is right between Ile Jesus from the Island of Montreal, providing residents with nearby access to the highways that will take them to the most populated areas of Montreal. This is convenient for those who need to commute to work, or individuals who want to explore Montreal’s nightlife. Make sure to visit the Bio-Ferme Laval during the summer to get fresh farm produce.

Neighbourhoods

Alfred-Pellan

Alfred-Pellan contains the following neighbourhoods: Pont-Viau, Duvernay, Saint-Vincent-De-Paul, and Saint-Francois. These neighbourhoods are by far the oldest in Laval and are home to many mom & pop shops and smaller businesses. This also happens to make them the quietest neighbourhoods in the city. In addition, there are many scenic parks that are great for walking and for outdoor getaways.

Marc-Aurele-Fortin

The neighbourhoods located within Marc-Aurele-Fortin are Sainte-Rose, Auteuil, Vimont, and Laval-des-Rapides. The majority of the fine dining restaurants in Laval tend to be aggregated within this area, along with many of the historic churches that are symbolic of Laval’s past milestones and achievements.

Real Estate Market

The homes that you can expect to find in the Alfred-Pellan area are mostly townhomes, semi-detached homes, fully detached homes, bungalows, and the occasional mansion if you are lucky. Many of these homes are fairly standard with respect to what they offer, and would be most suitable for single families looking for residential homes at affordable prices. Most of them were built in the 1950s, which might be appealing to those who prefer traditional home designs.

Marc-Aurele-Fortin contains an eclectic mix of homes depending on the neighbourhood that you choose to live in. Some areas offer larger semi-detached and fully detached homes with a modern design. Other areas offer low-rise luxury condos for sale that tend to disappear pretty quickly due to their extremely competitive sale prices.

Laval-Iles offers a mix of high-end fully detached homes, bungalows, and affordable apartment rentals for students or temporary workers. Many of the detached homes come with parking garages for multiple cars, fully renovated interior rooms (kitchen, bathroom, etc.), and an ample amount of open space.

  • Average Home Price: $471,968
