Longueuil
Longueuil
(/lɒŋˈɡeɪl/; French: [lɔ̃ɡœj]) is a city in the province of Quebec, Canada. It is the seat of the Montérégie administrative region and the central city of the urban agglomeration of Longueuil. It sits on the south shore of the Saint Lawrence River directly across from Montreal. The population as of the Canada
Canada
2016 Census totalled 239,700, making it Montreal's second largest suburb, the fifth most populous city in Quebec
Quebec
and twentieth largest in Canada. Charles Le Moyne founded Longueuil
Longueuil
as a seigneurie in 1657. It would become a parish in 1845, a village in 1848, a town in 1874 and a city in 1920. Between 1961 and 2002, Longueuil's borders grew three times, as it was amalgamated with surrounding municipalities; there was a strong de-amalgamation in 2006 (see 2000–2006 municipal reorganization in Quebec). Longueuil
Longueuil
is a residential, commercial and industrial city. It incorporates some urban features, but is essentially a suburb. Longueuil
Longueuil
can be classified as a commuter town as a large portion of its residents commute to work in Montreal. Most buildings are single-family homes constructed in the post-war period. The city consists of three boroughs: Le Vieux-Longueuil, Saint-Hubert and Greenfield Park. Longueuil
Longueuil
is the seat of the judicial district of Longueuil.[7] Residents of the city are called Longueuillois.

Ruins of Fort Longueuil
Fort Longueuil
in 1825.

The territory of New France
New France
was divided into seigneuries in order to ensure the colony's defence. Longueuil
Longueuil
was founded in 1657 by Charles Le Moyne, a merchant from Ville-Marie (present day Montreal), as a seigneurie.[8] According to Abbé Faillon, Charles Le Moyne, lord of the area starting in 1657, named Longueuil
Longueuil
after a village which is today the seat of a canton in the district of Dieppe in his homeland of Normandy. His son, Charles Le Moyne de Longueuil, built Fort Longueuil
Fort Longueuil
as his fortified residence. It was constructed of stone between 1685 and 1690 and had four towers.[9] Fort Longueuil
Fort Longueuil
was believed to be occupied by American troops during the American Revolutionary War. It was subsequently occupied by the British. It was demolished in 1810 due to its poor condition.[9] The archaeological remains of Fort Longueuil
Fort Longueuil
were recognized as a National Historic Site of Canada

on May 25, 1923. The site extends beneath the present-day Saint-Antoine-de-Padoue Cathedral.[9]

The seigneurial system ended in 1845 and Longueuil
Longueuil
was turned into a parish municipality named Saint-Antoine-de-Longueuil.[8] In 1848, a portion detached from the parish and officially established as the village of Longueuil. This same village became a town in 1874, and then a city in 1920.[8] Musician Paul Pratt notably served as the city's mayor from 1935-1966. Longueuil's city limits expanded for the first time in 1961 when it merged with Montréal-Sud, and again in 1969 when it merged with Ville Jacques-Cartier.[8] In both cases, Longueuil
Longueuil
was chosen as the name of the new city. On January 1, 2002, as part of the 2000–2006 municipal reorganization in Quebec, the provincial government amalgamated the former Longueuil
Longueuil
with Boucherville, Brossard, Greenfield Park, LeMoyne, Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, Saint-Hubert and Saint-Lambert. As with the 1960s, the name Longueuil
Longueuil
was chosen for the new city. However, after a change of government and a 2004 referendum, Boucherville, Brossard, Saint-Lambert and Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville were re-constituted as independent cities on January 1, 2006. As such, the current city of Longueuil
Longueuil
now includes only the former cities of Longueuil
Longueuil
(1969-2002), Saint-Hubert, Greenfield Park and LeMoyne. Geography[edit]
