The Tour de l'Île will be passing through Montreal West and we will be there to cheer cyclists on! Participants will be going west along Broughton down Ballantyne S. to Avon towards Ville St-Pierre. The first cyclists should be coming through around 9:15 a.m. and the last ones will make their way around 12:15 p.m.
We’ve organized special activities for the kids on Broughton between Ballantyne S. and Westminster. We will have face painting, an inflatable game, arts and crafts and a bike workshop where kids can learn about basic bike maintenance. There will be a bike obstacle course for children to try out. Drop by from 10-11:30 a.m. and help cheer on the cyclists as they pass through our Town.
The following roads will be closed on June 2nd starting at 9:00 a.m. and are expected to reopen around 12:15 p.m.
We suggest that residents avoid taking their cars during this time as traffic will be difficult. Those who must get around by car should check a map of all road closures on the Island of Montreal to best plan their itinerary.
It is important to respect the no parking signs that will be installed for the event. Parking will be forbidden on these streets as of 1 a.m. on Sunday, June 2. All cars parked in a no parking zone during the night of Saturday to Sunday will be towed. Parking will be permitted when the streets reopen.
Residents with valid parking permits can park on neighbouring streets while the parking restrictions are in effect. Free parking will be permitted in the municipal parking lots at Town Hall and the Public Library.
For more information about the event and to register, visit the Tour de l’Île website.
Streets highlighted in yellow will be closed from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
Residents are invited to pick up free compost at Hodgson Field (by the basketball court). You’ll need to bring your own bucket/containers and shovel. Please avoid driving on the field. Available while quantities last.
Updated on May 16th: the trees are sold out! An email confirming the selected tree species as well as payment details will be sent to all residents who have reserved a tree.
Our sixth annual tree giveaway will begin May 6, 2019. A total of 45 trees will be made available to Montreal West residents on a first come first serve basis. Fill out the order form below if you are interested in buying a $10 tree. We will be accepting orders from May 6th at 8:30 a.m. to May 17th at 4:30 p.m. or until quantities have run out. Orders received before the start time will not be considered. Maximum of one tree request per household. Trees will be delivered to the residents at the end of May/early June (date to be determined).

Trees must be planted by the residents themselves. Please note, however, that these trees cannot be planted on land that belongs to the Town, that is, in the area between the property line and the sidewalk.

The Town of Montreal West is working to review and improve its current communication tools to better serve its residents. We are interested in finding out more about the effectiveness of the tools we use to communicate with you. We invite you to take a few minutes of your time to fill out our survey and have a chance to win a free course offered by the Recreation department!
Complete the survey online or by hand. Hard copies of the survey will be available at Town Hall and the Community Center as of Tuesday, April 9. You have until April 26 to participate.
We want to hear what you have to say.
The Town invites proponents to submit proposals of high architectural quality that meet certain sustainable development objectives as part of its public call for proposals published on the provincial government’s electronic tender system, SEAO (Système électronique d’appel d’offres) on March 5th.
The Town’s objective is to sell the property in order to extend the commercial sector on the southern section of Westminster Avenue. This fits into the overall plan to beautify and revitalize the downtown area around Davies Park. The Town would like this project to act as a catalyst for future development on the east side of Westminster Avenue South. Preference may be given to projects proposing a work completion schedule that is less than the minimum required in the call for proposals.
The document can be ordered online on the SEAO website.
Free skate and hockey pick-up games will take place daily at the Legion Memorial Rink from March 4 to 8.
Please note that helmets with full mask, neck guard, and gloves are required during the pick-up hockey games.
It is now possible for you to sign up to our summer activities and take advantage of early bird pricing.
Your kids will have a blast, and make new friends at our popular day camp!
A variety of aquatic activities are offered at the municipal pool. A pool membership is required to participate in any pool program.
Course session dates
Youth programs include weekly themes, visits from special guests, waterpark access, library & community visits, giant water slides, and more!
As part of the Town of Montreal West’s beautification program of Edgar Davies Park, Phase 2 is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2018. Phase 2 consists primarily of the construction of a splash pad adjacent to the new playground area and additional landscaping in the vicinity of the new splash pad (including tree planting). Work is tentatively planned for mid-May through mid-September. We are optimistic the water feature might be available this summer to use but it is possible the project will only be completed at the end of the summer. The playground area should remain accessible during the construction. More details will be made available before the start of the project.
