Revision as of 21:19, 19 June 2008

Montreal South West (Le Sud-Ouest) is the area west of Downtown, on both sides of the Lachine Canal, bordered by the districts of LaSalle, Verdun and Westmount.

It is made up of the neighborhoods of Petite-Bourgogne-Griffintown (Little Burgundy), Saint-Henri, Pointe-Saint-Charles, Côte-Saint-Paul and Ville Émard.

Historically a blue collar neighborhood, it used to be called "Smokey Valley" because of a high concentration of heavy industry and other sources of pollution. Those days are long gone, and the Lachine canal cleanup and conversion into a park and bike path, as well as many of the old industrial buildings being gentrified and turned into luxury condominiums have changed the face of Sud Ouest forever.
