§ Development

The Belle-Rivière Estate in Sainte-Scholastique, built in 1804

Mirabel was formed through the expropriation of private lands and the merger of 8 municipalities in 1971. The former municipalities were (with their individual founding dates in brackets): Saint-Augustin (1855); Saint-Benoît (1855); Saint-Hermas (1855); Saint-Janvier-de-Blainville (1855); Sainte-Scholastique (1855); Saint-Canut (1857); Sainte-Monique (1872), and Saint-Janvier-de-la-Croix (1959). Initially called Ville de Sainte-Scholastique but renamed Mirabel in 1973, the city was planned to become a vast transportation and industrial hub for Eastern Canada with Montréal-Mirabel International Airport
Montréal-Mirabel International Airport
at its centre.[4] The airport, which opened in 1975, never became a major aviation hub and the industrial parks never materialized, and in 2004¡ the airport closed to all passenger traffic. In 2000, about 10 square kilometres of Mirabel's territory was annexed by Lachute. Communities[edit]
