The 4 poles of the
Côte-des-Neiges district

Commercial pole

The Rimbault stream which once crossed the district has now given way to an important commercial artery. The Chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges, whose route was also influenced by the presence of Amerindian paths, organizes the economic development of the district which today has various shops (bookstores, bars, restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.) The constant evolution of the offer as well as the population that stands out, both by its high immigration rate and by its youth, illustrate the dynamism that characterizes the neighborhood. Finally, residents and visitors of Côte-des-Neiges can count on an efficient public transportation service including bus routes, metro and bicycle paths.

Spiritual pole

The Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal, founded by brother Saint André, represents one of the most important centers of attraction in Montreal. With its impressive architecture and lush gardens, this Catholic institution, whose number of visitors is estimated at two million per year, is a must for international tourists in addition to serving as a place of meditation for a wide spectrum of cultural and religious communities.

This spiritual destination is not, however, the only place of worship in the area. Also nearby are the Spanish and Portuguese synagogue of Montreal, as well as the oldest Jewish institution in the city of Quebec and Canada, whose history dates back to 1760 with the arrival of the first Jewish arrivals who settled in the region. We also find in the sector a large number of religious establishments of all faiths, not to mention the Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery – Canada’s largest cemetery, whose land on the mountainside ensures the burial of the deceased of various beliefs .

Knowledge pole

With the importance of renowned educational establishments on its territory, Côte-des-Neiges at the heart a knowledge crossroad. For example, think of Campus Montréal (Université de Montréal, HEC and École Polytechnique de Montréal), which brings together more than 60,000 students annually. There’s also the centers, groups and research chairs, institutes and hospitals affiliated with it: making it the second university research hub in Canada and the first in the health sciences. Also notable is  the presence of Jean-de-Brébeuf, Marie-de-France and Notre-Dame schools who contribute to the maintenance and development of a rich and boiling local community.

Health pole

Thanks to the presence of may hospitals such as Sainte-Justine, the Jewish General, and St-Mary’s hospitals, alongside the University Institute of Geriatrics of Montreal, the Nazareth and Louis-Braille Institute, and many medical clinics, Côte-des-Neiges has one of the highest proportions of health professionals in Canada. It should also be noted that several of these establishments have specific vocations, like the CHU Sainte-Justine: the only Quebec establishment dedicated exclusively to children, adolescents and mothers. The omnipresence and reputation of these health establishments give the district considerable notoriety, which, thanks to the total of nearly 20,000 employees and volunteers as well as the high volume of visitors to these institutions, benefits from their significant contribution to the economic development.
