The origin of Pointe-aux-Trembles dates back to 1674. A small municipality held the same name before the 1982 annexation to the city of Montreal. It is during the first half of the 18th century that Pointe-aux-Trembles took its flight, due in part by the construction of Chemin du Roy, the long road that linked Montreal to Quebec City. Gradually the Chemin du Roy was submerged by the St-Lawrence River and replaced by what is now Notre-Dame East.
Located at the extreme east of the island of Montreal and cut off by the « rivière-des-prairies » to the nord and the St-Lawrence River to the south. Its physical geographical location lets the boroughs citizen benefit from the wonderful water front. Multiple parc have been added along the river to emphasize the scenery. Although there has been recent development, the borough has many recreational-tourism, like the island of Montreal Golf Club. A multitude or cultural activities are offered in the libraries and houses of culture, while other locations are welcoming hobbies. The borough has known institutions such as the Rivière-des-Prairies Hospital and the Marie-Victorin Cégep.
Thanks to our heritage projects, our cultural activities in libraries and culture homes, with our offers in sport services, hobbies and social development, we desire to give all our residents the opportunity to live life to the fullest, all the while fulfilling their needs.
