About Dollard Des Ormeaux
Dollard-des-Ormeaux is a predominantly English-speaking on-island suburb of Montreal in southwestern Quebec, Canada. The town was named after French martyr Adam Dollard des Ormeaux. The town was merged with the city of Montreal in 2002 and became part of the borough of Dollard-Des Ormeaux–Roxboro. When residents were offered the option, they chose to leave the City of Montreal and the town was reinstated as a separate entity in 2006. In 1714, the area was part of the Parish of St-Joachim de Pointe-Claire. It became part of the Parish of Ste-Geneviève when it detached from Pointe-Claire in 1845. Dollard is known for its many well-attended green spaces, providing a park within one kilometre of each home.
