Located at the western extremity of the island of Montreal, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue is a small independent city. The area is bordered by Sainte-Anne Street, Brome Street, Highway 40 and the Saint Lawrence River. Neighbouring areas are Kirkland, Baie-d'Urfe, Senneville and Pierrefonds. In this town, you'll be just as likely to hear people speaking French or Engish. This mostly residential area is comprised of mostly houses, and also several condos. Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue will interest families who wish to raise their children in a peaceful and safe environment. Although it is far from the heart of Montreal, Highway 40 makes the downtown core easily accessible, even from the far reaches of the island.
The area gradually developped in the XIXth century, and became a city in 1895. It was subsequently made a part of Montreal, but the independent spirit of the town prevailed and Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue later separated. Today the town has more than 5,000 residents.
