Rosemère, a proud, green and prosperous town
"The Town of Rosemère has been recognized for many years for the beauty of its territory and the richness and harmony of its community," states the municipality's website.
Bordering the magnificent Mille Îles River for 4.5 kilometers, the city offers tranquility and a beautiful environment on a territory of over 10 square kilometers.
Geographically advantaged by the development of the road network, notably highways 13, 15 and 640, the city also plays a leading commercial role while jealously protecting its rural character. This is what convinces many individuals, couples or families to settle in this charming municipality of the Lower Laurentians.
From summer visitors to permanent residents
In 1898, the Rosemère train station was built and the region owes its development to the first Canadian Pacific locomotive. At that time, the town was essentially a vacation spot that gradually became more and more attractive to summer visitors. Many representatives of the English-speaking elite of the time established their summer residences here. The chapel, the country club and the golf club were created in the 1920s and 1930s.
Little by little, the summer residents became permanent residents of the city and their needs increased. The citizens of Rosemère then asked to be separated from Sainte-Thérèse parish in order to obtain their own maintenance services. In 1947, Rosemère became a parish in its own right. At the end of the 1950s, the parish became increasingly active. Numerous groups and associations were born. Rosemère then had a population of nearly 5,500.

It was replaced by the Marius-Dufresne Bridge, named after its builder who died accidentally on the construction site. The bridge is used by route 117, and allows to join the regions of Laval and Laurentides. Source: Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec. Publisher: Charpentier
Long live the bungalows!
During this period and until 1975, the bungalows were developed, particularly north of Grande-Côte Road, in the Westgate area and around the golf course. In the 1970s, the Town of Rosemère began to develop its public facilities, notably the town hall, the community center and the municipal housing office.
It was also an important period of demographic growth. From this period until 1995, the Westgate, Ducharme, Bleury, Maisonneuve, Jardin des Tourelles and Thorncliffe sectors developed. The population increased from 6,200 (1961) to approximately 12,000 (1995). It will increase to around 14,000 inhabitants with the 5th phase of development, notably around the Vignobles, Langloiserie, Villas and Clervaux sectors and with the redevelopment of the Bleury Manor.
Today, 90% of the territory of the Town of Rosemère is built-up and the number of vacant lots is low. On the other hand, the potential for land to be redeveloped is interesting, particularly with Place Rosemère and the golf course. In addition, densification on Chemin de la Grande-Côte is desired.
