Craving more space? The North Shore has you covered. Vast, green and bursting with culture, it’s a true Québec community. Its extended territory includes around 20 municipalities, divided between the two administrative regions of Lanaudière and Laurentides. The region is a place like no other, combining beautiful nature and the very best of urban life.
Mirabel, Deux-Montagnes, Oka, Saint-Eustache, Pointe-Calumet, Saint-Joseph-du-Lac, Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac, Blainville, Boisbriand, Bois-des-Filion, Lorraine, Rosemère, Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines and Sainte-Thérèse.
Looking to raise your family in a safe, fun and welcoming community? The North Shore is the perfect place for you. Here, 60 percent of households have kids, so family life is a top priority. You can take your pick of great neighbourhoods and countless year-round activities … not to mention impromptu pool parties, backyard BBQs and snowmen-building competitions with your neighbours.
Whether you’re looking for a home to buy or rent, the North Shore real estate market gives you a lot more for your money. Renting costs around $700 less a month than downtown Montréal. And thanks to the region’s lower home prices, 76 percent of residents own. Bigger living spaces + smaller payments = the kind of math we can get on board with!
Get to and from the city
All roads lead to Montréal! Since a large portion of the North Shore population works on the island, there are a bunch of transportation options to choose from. Suburban trains, subways and buses will get you to the city easily during rush hours. And the region has a well-developed road network if you prefer to commute by car. Not only that, but several development projects are underway right now to make getting to and from the city even easier, including the REM (Réseau express métropolitain) train station.
Driving by car is the most popular means of transportation among North Shore residents. Whether you drive by yourself or carpool to work, you won’t mind the ride with so much beautiful scenery to enjoy along the way!
