Pierrefonds-Roxboro is the most populated borough in the West Island with nearly 70,000 residents, according to the 2016 census. Stretching along the northern shoreline, the property market varies in the suburban area. There are certain pockets where you’ll find condo towers mixed in with mid-range homes, while the waterfront features luxury houses that extend beyond the average Montrealer’s budget.
Unlike other West Island boroughs, Pierrefonds-Roxboro remains part of the city of Montreal. Therefore, essential services are all run by the city, as opposed to other West Island neighbourhoods that have a higher degree of autonomy. During the summer months, you’ll find the locals at Cap-Saint-Jacques. This nature park showcases a gorgeous beach, hiking trails, allowing locals to get in touch with Montreal’s tranquil natural beauty.
