If you are looking for a home in the northern ring of Montreal, Mirabel should be at the top of your list. With its harmonious combination of urban living and rural charm, Mirabel is a city that offers many advantages.

Mirabel, a city to choose, a future to succeed!

Located in the Lower Laurentians, the city of Mirabel was created in 1971 by the merger of 14 municipalities, making it one of the largest cities in the region, with a territory of 477 km2. However, despite its size, the city has managed to preserve its rural charm, offering a high quality of life to its residents. Speaking of residents, the City of Mirabel has a population of more than 61,100 people (2022), with an average age of only 37 years.

A host of activities are available to you, such as shopping, biking, skating, discovering gourmet products, go-karting, golfing, horseback riding and even helicopter tours. In addition, there are many parks and green spaces where you can relax or practice your favorite sports. Mirabel is also known for its many large-scale events held throughout the year on its territory. Finally, Mirabel is also very well located, with easy access to highways 15 and 50 and to public transportation, making it a convenient choice for people working in Laval, Montreal or Saint-Jérôme.

Postcard by Philias Coulombe ~1910. Did you know that the City of Mirabel has the oldest Catholic church still in existence in the former seigneury of Blainville? In fact, the inauguration of the church of Saint-Janvier in 1863 precedes that of the current Sainte-Thérèse-d'Avila church by more than twenty years! It must be said that Saint-Janvier was the first parish to be separated from Sainte-Thérèse-de-Blainville in 1845 (Source: Société d'histoire et de généalogie des Mille-Îles)

50 years of existence

Mirabel celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2022. On January 1, 1971, the city of Sainte-Scholastique was created by splitting part of the city of Sainte-Thérèse-Ouest and merging the following thirteen municipalities: Parish of Saint-Augustin, Village of Saint-Augustin, Parish of Saint-Benoît, Village of Saint-Benoît, Parish of Saint-Canut, Parish of Saint-Antoine-des-Laurentides, Parish of Saint-Hermas, Parish of Saint-Janvier-de-Blainville, Municipality of Saint-Janvier-de-la-Croix, Parish of Saint-Jérusalem-d'Argenteuil, Parish of Sainte-Monique, Parish of Sainte-Scholastique, and Village of Sainte-Scholastique. On January 27, 1973, the town of Sainte-Scholastique changed its name to Mirabel.

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?

The history of the area includes the name Mirabel, which is said to have been chosen for a farm in the 1870s. According to legend, local elders were encouraged to name their farms to facilitate mail delivery. A Scottish major who had two daughters named Myriam and Isabelle named his farm Mirabel. Later, in 1886, the federal government gave the Canadian Pacific Railway the responsibility of carrying the mail. A post office was opened at the corner of Côte Saint-Louis and Rang Saint-Hyacinthe, where the mail was transported from the Saint-Hermas station on Rang Saint-Hyacinthe. This post office was officially named Mirabel, which suggests that it is mainly him who is at the origin of the name Mirabel.
