Living in Longueuil

Longueuil offers an environment in which individuals and families may grow and develop. The availability and variety of services that are to hand are advantages that can only be offered by a city the size of Longueuil. Needful of the necessity to preserve the quality of its environment, the Ville de Longueuil plans its growth in such a way as to ensure the harmonious development of its territory.

Thanks to the particular charms of each of its boroughs, Longueuil offers a choice of lifestyles to please all tastes. Hundreds of districts meet the most varied needs of housing and lifestyle. Parks and recreational installations abound and are well suited to the needs of local residents. Nor do Longueuil's cultural activities leave anything to be desired: theatre, exhibitions, and shows are offered in different venues throughout the city.

A dynamic community life contributes directly to the well being of the population. Over five hundred volunteer organizations work in such fields as recreation, culture, and welfare to complement the work carried out by public and government institutions.

Longueuil offers a whole range of commercial services, from prestige brand name companies to corner stores. Many government ministries have regional offices in Longueuil so as to offer efficient service to the public.

Longueuil families have access to an important educational network. The Marie-Victorin and Riverside School Boards are responsible, for the Longueuil territory, of 49 elementary schools, 13 secondary schools and 3 trade schools. There are also two CEGEPs (junior colleges) and many private schools. Three large universities, Université de Montréal, Université de Sherbrooke, and Université du Québec à Montréal have established a campus in Longueuil.
