Saint-Laurent was first settled in 1700 after land grants were given, including one to Bernard Bleignier dit Jarry, who is associated later with a village mayor and city councillor. Saint-Laurent was founded as the Parish of Saint-Laurent in 1720.

Merger and proposed demerger

The City of Saint-Laurent or Ville Saint-Laurent was merged into the city of Montreal on January 1, 2002, by the Parti Québécois government. On June 20, 2004, the demerger forces lost a referendum on the issue of recreating Saint-Laurent as a city. While 75% of the turnout voted to demerge, this only represented 28.5% of the total eligible voting population, falling short of the requisite 35% as set by the province.

Saint-Laurent is one of Montreal's outer boroughs located in the north central part of the island. It's bordered by Pierrefonds-Roxboro to the west, Ahuntsic-Cartierville to the north and east, and Côte-des-Neiges and the Town of Mount-Royal to the south.

Saint-Laurent is home to many parks including the Bois-de-Liesse Nature Park.

Notable neighbourhoods include Bois-Franc, Vieux Saint-Laurent and Norgate.
