The LBPSB serves a wide variety of communities across the Greater Montréal area. Montréal is Québec’s largest city by population, and Canada’s oldest city as it was founded in 1642, making it rich in history. It is one of Canada’s most bilingual cities and is home to a rich and diverse population.

Our schools are located across many different municipalities from exciting urban settings that allow access to the heart of downtown via metro, lovely suburban settings with strong community feel, to schools located within quaint pockets of nature.

There are many places to explore within the Greater Montréal area!

Lachine Canal: Home to Montréal’s most historical site, the Lachine canal spans along the southwest borough. It includes a paved path for bike rides, runs, or walks, greenery for lovely picnic locations, and opportunity for kayaking or other boat riding along the canal. https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/lhn-nhs/qc/canallachine
