To live in Verdun is to enjoy the beauty of the river and make the most of the borough’s green spaces and vibrant urban scene. 

The 69,000 or so Verdunites are a short ride from downtown thanks to the borough’s three metro stations. 

Active transportation is also popular in Verdun, where cyclists, pedestrians and skateboarders make full use of its 27 kilometres of bike paths, 9.5 kilometres of pedestrian paths, and 15 kilometres of shoreline.

Active mobility occupies a pre-eminent place in Verdun. Every day, cyclists, pedestrians and skateboarders use the borough’s 39 km of bike paths and lanes, 10 km of foot paths, and 15 km of public shoreline.
Founded in 1875, Verdun became a Montréal borough in 2002. This mainly residential community boasts a rich history. Archeological digs conducted near the Maison Nivard-De Saint-Dizier in recent years revealed the presence of Indigenous Peoples dating back 5,500 years.




L’Île-des-Sœurs is a residential area located in a unique urban environment that offers access to downtown Montréal within minutes. It is also home to the lush Domaine Saint-Paul wooded area, designated an exceptional forest ecosystem by the Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs.


This residential area, bordered in the north by the Canal de l’aqueduc, dates back to the 1940s and is a source of pride for neighbourhood residents. There’s a familiarity about each of the buildings here, which lends the neighbourhood its charm.
