Le Sud-Ouest (the South West) is a borough of the culture-rich City of Montreal. Many of the region’s 10,800 families have chosen this neighbourhood for its proximity to downtown Montreal without the crowded feeling that can be experienced in the city’s core.
The borough’s pleasant urban environment is dotted with green space, including over 100 parks and community gardens. It is also home to some of Montreal’s most longstanding neighbourhoods, including Saint-Henri, Pointe-Saint-Charles, Griffintown, Little Burgundy, Ville Emard, and Cote Saint-Paul.
The rich heritage of the Sud-Ouest is reflected in its historic industrial factories and workers’ houses, many of which have been converted into modern residential and commercial properties that include lofts, stylish offices and family homes. These conversions have resulted in revitalized neighbourhoods and migration to the area.
Le Sud-Ouest offers no shortage of amenities, which include public pools, 80 community organizations, libraries, recreational centres, arenas and skating rinks. Known as a vibrant and welcoming community, the Sud-Ouest borough is an excellent place to live just outside of downtown Montreal.
