With regard to population density, Deux-Montagnes is the second most important city within the Deux-Montagnes MRC (regional county municipality) territory. Stretching over 5.94 km2, the City of Deux-Montagnes is divided into 6 sectors, namely the Grand-Moulin, Du Lac, Olympia, De la Gare, Du Coteau and Du Golf Districts.
Flanked in part by the Lake of Deux-Montagnes and the Mille-Îles River, endowed with a magnificent Roger-Lemoine well-kept woodlands area through which runs a bicycle path that travels through town, studded with numerous historic and heritage buildings, and counting two commuter train stations to its name, Deux-Montagnes is a city with a unique cachet and a green philosophy, protected by an environmental vision and related practices.
In the beginning, the city was renowned as a holiday resort area. But gradually, families began to settle down on a permanent basis. Today, Deux-Montagnes’ population, which now totals close to 18,000 inhabitants, is a fine example of cultural and linguistic diversity. The effervescence and community spirit that reign in Deux-Montagnes make it a lively, animated, warm and hospitable city, that sets itself apart by its quality of life, which is unique in the Lower Laurentians.
The construction of the second train station, next to Highway 640, had considerable impact on the region’s economic growth. No matter where you are in the city, in less than seven minutes, you can access one of the two Montreal/Deux-Montagnes commuter train stations… It’s like having downtown Montreal in the suburbs and the peace and quiet of a green suburb next to the big city!
