Moving to Blainville

Located halfway between the metropolis and the beautiful Laurentian region, Blainville has the wind in its sails, with economic vitality, population growth and access to property above the average for Quebec cities. The city is popular with young families in particular. According to La Presse +, if Blainville is not considered to have a particular charm, most people who move there do so for the quality of life.

On the one hand, there are homes for all tastes and budgets, from reasonably priced condos and semi-detached houses to the luxurious mansions of the chic Fontainebleau district. On the other hand, 40% of the territory is made up of natural environments, while residential projects are integrated into recreational sites. In addition, the city offers a safe and friendly environment that is neither too small nor too large. The speed limit is set at 30 km/h, except on main arteries. The crime rate is very low. The increase in population has also stimulated many businesses to locate here and the tax revenue is invested directly in services to citizens. Can we expect more?

Blainville's short history

Recognized as a city since 1968, Blainville nevertheless benefits from a history that spans over 300 years. It was in 1683 that the Seigneury of the Thousand Islands was granted to Sidrac-Dugué de Boisbriand. The vast lands of this seigniory include the present cities of Saint-Eustache, Bois-des-Fillion, Lorraine, Rosemère, Boisbriand, Sainte-Thérèse and Blainville. However, it was not until several decades later that French colonists settled there. In the case of Blainville, it was not until the second half of the 18th century that the territory gradually opened up to colonization under the impetus of Marie-Thérèse de Blainville, daughter of the military officer Louis-Jean-Baptiste Céloron de Blainville, and her husband Jean-Marie Nolan Lamarque.

Blainville, from 1968 to today

According to Statistics Canada, the population of Blainville was 56,863 at the last census in 2016. Statistics Quebec estimates that in 2021 it will be more than 62,000 people. Since then, it has become the 2nd most populous city in the Laurentian administrative region after Saint-Jérôme and the 17th in Quebec.

The demographic expansion that Blainville is experiencing is exceptional, especially if we compare its growth rate to that of other cities in Quebec. At a high rate, the city is developing, becoming more dynamic, and urbanizing while preserving its green side, both in its residential neighbourhoods (which have a multitude of parks and a network of bicycle paths) and in its agricultural sector and its immense peat bog.

A review of the figures in this table is interesting. It reveals the rapid growth of Blainville in terms of population and residential development, but also in terms of municipal expenditures. The total number of kilometers of streets follows the same trend, also doubling every 20 years. Similarly, the average value of homes increases by 433% between 1968 and 1978, 311% from 1978 to 1988, 177% from 1988 to 1998 and 280% from 1998 to 2017. Over a period of nearly 40 years, the average value of a single-family home of $4,500 in 1968 increases to $310,125 in 2017. The assessed valuation of the entire municipality also increases almost exponentially; from $5 million in 1968 to $108 million a decade later. In 2017, that property assessment is $7,651 million!
