The island of Laval, Quebec balances the energy and opportunity of big city living, with the beauty and tranquility of nature. On one hand, Laval is the largest suburb of Montreal, the third largest municipality in the province of Quebec, and the 13th largest city in Canada. On the other hand, Laval is rich in green space and laced with rivers, wildlife reserves and trails. It’s a region with a diverse economy and population, which are mirrored in its neighbourhoods and real estate market.
Located in southwestern Quebec, just north of Montreal, Laval offers a balanced living environment — abundant green space, dynamic economic and urban centres, and safe residential neighbourhoods throughout the region.
30% of Laval’s territory is devoted to agricultural production, and those who live in the region have ample opportunities to escape to the great outdoors and explore expansive parks, hiking trails, wildlife reserves and rivers.
At the same time, Laval is the largest suburb of Montreal, and lies at the intersection of several major roads and railway lines. It’s a key transportation and economic hub between Montreal and regions to the north. In addition to the agricultural, manufacturing, commercial and residential sectors, biotechnology, information sciences, and agri-food production and processing are fast-growing opportunities. At the same time, employment growth is anticipated in key service sectors, including business management, professional, scientific and technical services, healthcare and trade.
Laval’s population is diverse and welcoming, including well-established Greek, Italian, Portuguese and Haitian communities, and new Canadians hailing from around the world.
