About Brossard

Brossard

 

 

 

Brossard is a municipality in the Montérégieregion of QuebecCanada and is part of the Greater Montreal area. According to the 2011 census, Brossard's population was 79,273. Prior to 2006, Brossard was formerly a borough of the municipality of Longueuil.

 

 

 

 

History

 

 

 

The city of Brossard was founded on February 14, 1958 and was known before then as Brosseau Station, itself part of La Prairie-de-la-Madeleine Parish. Its first mayor was Georges-Henri Brossard. At the very beginning, there were 3,400 inhabitants.

The city has some homes dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, particularly along Chemin des Prairies. Maison Sénécal and Maison Deschamps.

On August 8, 1964 a portion of land from Greenfield Park was added and became the "P" section of Brossard. Furthermore,Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Cœur was annexed to Brossard on March 25, 1978 becoming the "A" section to form the current city.

In the 1970s, an attempt was made by René Désourdy to construct acemetery in Brossard. The attempt failed due to the water table being too high in most of the city, and as of 2014 Brossard has no cemetery.

Brossard was forcibly merged into the city of Longueuil on January 1, 2002 as a result of municipal reorganization in Quebec.  and a demerger movement was started by Pierre Senécal, Jacques St-Amant and Gilles Larin which resulted in a municipal referendum, the largest demerger vote, that took place on June 20, 2004. 38.70% of the 50,539 qualified voters voted YES for demerger, which met the requirements (35% or more of total voting population) needed for de-amalgamation. As a result, Brossard would continue to be a borough of the city of Longueuil only until the end of 2005.

On January 1, 2006, Brossard was reconstituted as a city and Jean-Marc Pelletier was elected as the new mayor. However, Brossard still remains part of the urban agglomeration of Longueuil and thus, Brossard sits on theagglomeration council which determines certain powers of reconstituted cities.
