Montreal Online Maps

A series of Montreal Online. Three different types of maps related to each of the 19 boroughs of the City of Montreal and to each of the 15 other cities of the Island of Montreal. Street maps, metro maps and a nice addition, artworks by metro station.

The Canadian Cartographic Association defines cartography as the science and practice of drawing maps. Cartography is about the conception, production and study of maps. It is a complex ever-changing field entirely dedicated to the map-making process

Montreal Boroughs Street Maps

Each of the 19 boroughs of the City of Montreal boroughs is further divided into neighborhoods that tend to have the same characteristic areas. The points of attractions for visitors, shoppers or travellers of each borough are composed of stores, banks, government buildings and cultural attractions while their industrial parts, whatever their size, are composed of warehouses, factories, mills and other industries.

Boroughs and cities are characterized by various groups, races and cultures. In the Montreal boroughs, the residents offer a large variety of  food habits, dress habits, living conditions, religious beliefs, cultural outlook, customs and traditions all worth exploring.

The various residential areas with their low, medium or high density reflect different living environments where the richest as well as the poorest live near or not so near public transport. eet

A series of online maps that include a compass rose and a scale to estimate distances but, more importantly, that portray each borough and provide detailed information about the space they occupy and the services they offer.

Montreal City Maps

Montreal Cities Street Maps are, in a way, about the Island of Montreal with its 19 boroughs that hold specific powers and its 15 reconstituted cities that also hold specific powers and that offer local services to the residents within their city limits.

Each Borough Council has its own budget and each borough offers direct services to its residents. Services that include cultural activities, distribution of drinking water, maintenance of public places, local parks and municipal roads, social development, sports activities and urban planning.

Each City Council in each reconstituted city also offers direct services to their residents. Taxpayers in reconstituted cities receive a separate tax bill for their part of shared agglomeration services.

The Island of Montreal officially called the Agglomeration of Montreal is governed by the Agglomeration Council. The Council offers shared services to each borough and each city and the costs of these services are shared by the tax payers in both boroughs and cities.

The Agglomeration Council produces Montreal en statistique and provides various information such as demographic and economic profiles for each borough and each city of the Island of Montreal.

The main topics covered are employment, business establishments, household spending, residential manpower and residential construction and housing. Facts and figures that are available by subject, by territory and by map.

Let us remind you that in 2002 the Parti Québécois merged all the cities of the Island of Montreal into one mega City. In 2006 however, the Parti Libéral partially demerged the Island of Montreal into 16 cities, 15 independent cities including the very small Dorval Island and the City of Montreal divided into 19 boroughs. 

Montreal Metro Maps

Montreal Metro Maps simply wishes to inform you about the easiest way to find your way around in Montreal. Metro Montreal is our main form of public transport and most of us are regular users of our metro lines and metro bus, especially when the weather is bad.

Metro Montreal gets crowded depending on the time of day, but our 68 metro stations and four metro lines, that is our metro green line, orange, blue and yellow overlap at four stations and make it easier and faster to switch trains. A Montreal Metro that will eventually be extended in directions that still have to be finalised.

If you need to go to an important job interview, if you want to check if the apartment you plan on renting or the condo you plan on buying is near a metro station or a metro bus or, if you wish to go shopping in downtown Montreal, our Montreal Metro Maps and your OPUS metro card will take you safely to most if not all your destinations.
