District history


North of the Lachine Canal, the Petite-Bourgogne is located in the Southwest borough, in Montreal, and separated from the Saint-Henri neighbourhood by Atwater Avenue. French colonists have named it so in honor of their native region.

In 1864, the Petite-Bourgogne is known as the Delisle village as a tribute to an important real estate developer who starts building infrastructures. In 1876, residents create a parish distinct from Saint-Henri which they call Sainte-Cunégonde as a tribute to the wife of 11th century’s emperor Henri II, alias the Saint. As a city in 1884, Sainte-Cunégonde covers 125 acres, which is barely larger than La Fontaine Park right now.

Annexed to the City of Montreal in 1905, the neighbourhood becomes once and for all the Petite-Bourgogne. Irish, African-American and West Indian immigrants eventually join French inhabitants and mainly work for railway companies.

As for abutting neighbourhoods, the Petite-Bourgogne has been hit very hard by factory departures. In the 1960s, thousands of living units deemed too decrepit are demolished, in spite of popular opposition.


The area is slowly rebuilt until the 1980s to include low-cost housing, one-family houses and condominiums. With the sector’s progressive gentrification, new accommodation is built on the old marshalling yards, the Lachine Canal reopens, the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) expands and the popular Atwater Market is revived.

Artistically speaking, the ÉTS displays art pieces accessible to the public and metro users can contemplate the sculpture Un arbre dans le parc (A tree in the park) at the Georges-Vanier station.

Certain renowned public figures from Petite-Bourgogne include Georges Vanier, Governor General of Canada who lent his name to a street and the metro station, Louis Cyr, athlete and strong man, Oscar Peterson and Oliver Jones, both jazz musicians, as well as Michaëlle Jean, journalist and Governor General of Canada.
