All throughout the year, the borough of Saint-Laurent invites its residents to discover the wealth of Saint-Laurent's heritage, while taking part in hundreds of free activities at its parks and libraries.
The magnificent architectural video, presented in the historical and heritage Vieux-Saint-Laurent district, illustrates the Borough's development over time. This 15-minute video is projected on the front façade of Église Saint-Laurent from Friday to Sunday, at 9:15 p.m. and again at 9:30 p.m., June 13 – September 7.
The "Saint-Laurent in motion" mobile application makes it possible to keep up to date on the activities in the Borough, as well as independently and interactively explore the municipality. Just like the tourist map, this app suggests hundreds of cultural, natural and historical attractions in addition to walking and cycling routes to tour the territory.

Did you know?
Did you know that the Musée des maîtres et artisans du Québec (MMAQ), a crafts museum, is housed in a former Presbyterian church downtown? The church was torn down in 60 days in 1930, only to be rebuilt stone for stone in the borough of Saint-Laurent in 1931. The building then served as a Catholic chapel at the Collège de Saint-Laurent until 1975; it then became home to the Saint-Laurent Art Museum, which changed its name in 2003.
Street and plaza names in the Bois-Franc neighbourhood are inspired by aeronautics, geography, exploration and nature : rue Charles-Darwin, square Nelligan, place de l’Himalaya
