Old Lachine, Saint-Louis Village, and Lachine-West (Lachine Borough)
The Perfect Marriage
Located near Downtown Montreal, Lachine offers a lifestyle that’s as appealing to outdoor types as it is to history and culture buffs.
Known for its great quality of life and a dynamic cultural scene, the Lachine borough also provides a host of riverside parks and maritime activities.
Lachine’s diverse real estate market makes it especially appealing to young families and new homeowners. With new developments and reconversions underway, everyone can find their perfect home at an affordable price.
Lachine’s picturesque shoreline is of unparalleled beauty. Enjoy the riverside parks and the many restaurants along Saint-Joseph Boulevard, a relaxing area that’s surprisingly close to Downtown Montreal.
In addition to its lengthy river views, Lachine has 28 parks and 7 community gardens, a boon to those who love a bit of fresh air. Biking, walking, or rollerblading enthusiasts will enjoy Lachine’s many paths.
Discover the Sculp’tour
Along Lachine’s shores is one of Canada’s largest sculpture gardens: the Musée plein air de Lachine. This unique circuit showcases the wonders of contemporary sculpture. Visit it on foot or by bike.
Lachine is a smart choice for prospective homeowners. It is located between Downtown and the Trudeau Airport, just 15 minutes by car from either. In addition, the borough is home to many heritage sites, renowned schools, a public market, and nearly 200 businesses.
A Historic Neighbourhood with a Bright Future
With several urban renovation projects underway – like the revitalization of Old Lachine, and the conversion of industrial buildings to residential use – the borough’s real estate market is expanding.

Lachine’s real estate market offers unique waterfront housing, quality plexes at great value, and recent townhouses and condo developments. Over the last 12 months, most condos sold for less than $240,000, and 50% of buyers of duplexes, triplexes, and single-family homes paid less than $370,000. As such, many of Lachine’s properties are eligible for the City of Montreal’s financial assistance program.
