Trip Planner Canada  /  Quebec  /  Saint-Lambert
Saint-Lambert is an off-island suburb of Montreal, Quebec, located on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River. It was home to 21,555 people according to the Canada 2011 Census.Saint-Lambert is divided into two main sections: the original city of Saint-Lambert and the Préville neighborhood. The original city of Saint-Lambert (as it existed prior to 1969) is located from the Country Club of Montreal golf course to the border of Le Vieux-Longueuil borough. It includes the city's downtown, known as "The Village". On the other side of the Country Club of Montreal is the former city Préville, which merged with Saint-Lambert in 1969. It extends to the borders of the city of Brossard and the Longueuil borough of Greenfield Park.Saint-Lambert was named for the early French Canadian hunter Lambert Closse.HistoryIn 1636, Louis XIII of France was dividing up seigneuries in the new colony of New France. One of these was known as La Prairie, comprising La Prairie de la Magdeleine and La Prairie de Saint-Lambert. The lower part of the latter, was known as Mouillepied, due to the swampy conditions of the area. Saint-Lambert's first two permanent residents were André Marsil and André Achim in the 18th century. Today André Marsil's house can be found on the corner of Riverside Drive and Notre-Dame Avenue, was converted into a textile museum called the Marsil Museum, although the museum has since moved to the Bonsecours Market.
