[seynt-broo-noh-duh-mon-ter-vil; Fr. san-bry-noh-duh-mawn-tar-veel]

Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville is an off-island suburb of Montreal, in southwestern Quebec, Canada, on the south bank of the Saint Lawrence River just east of Montreal. It was merged with Longueuil in 2002 but de-merged in 2006.

History

Pierre Boucher de Boucherville Junior was granted the Montarville seigneury in 1710. François-Pierre Bruneau bought the seigneury in 1829. The Roman Catholic parish of Saint Bruno was set up in 1842. The two names "Saint Bruno" and "Montarville" were joined in 1855 when it became a parish municipality. It incorporated as a city in 1958.

Parks

The town resides at the foot of Mont Saint-Bruno, one of the mountains that make up the Monteregian Hills. The mountain is home to a provincial park, Parc National du Mont-Saint-Bruno, as well as a ski hill.
