Located at the southeast of the island of Montreal, right on the Lachine Canal, Lachine is bordered by the St. Lawrence River, the Lachine Canal, the Sheraton Promenade, Chomedey and Cote de Liesse highways and 55th Avenue. The neighbourhood is surrounded by LaSalle, Montreal West, Cote-Saint-Luc and Dorval. Formerly an independent city, Lachine has preserved its unique and interesting character.
The neighbourhood, which consists mostly of houses and apartments, has welcomed many new condo projects along the canal in the last few years. Lachine will interest families looking for a house in which to raise their kids, and who stand to benefit from the closeness of the city while still enjoying the relaxed pace of the suburbs. The many new condos along the canal will appeal to young couples and singles alike.
An independent city at first, Lachine developed thanks to the canal. In 2002, Lachine became part of Montreal. Today, it boasts more than 42,000 inhabitants.
