The Neighbourhood

HoMa a dynamic, growing neighbourhood

New meets old in this historic district which is experiencing a vibrant revival. Poised to be one of the most sought after neighbourhoods on the island of Montreal, Hochelaga-Maisonneuve is brimming with new residential developments, converted industrial spaces and a resurgence of local shops, trendy restaurants, casual cafés and friendly brew-pubs.

Central to the neighbourhood is Marché Maisonneuve, a market that has brought fresh Quebec produce and food to the neighbourhood for over a century. Place Valois, at the corner of Valois and Ontario, is a lively urban square featuring landscaped pedestrian walkways surrounded by cafés, restaurants and eclectic local shops.

Merchant associations are active in the neighbourhood. La Promenade Ontario and La Promenade Sainte Catherine Est promote the growing number of businesses that are establishing in the area to meet the needs of local residents.
