Monkland Village

Monkland Avenue redirects here

Monkland Village is a neighbourhood of the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce district in the Montreal borough of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. It is located along Monkland Avenue between Grand Boulevard and the Décarie Expressway/Décarie Boulevard. Both the neighbourhood and the avenue are named after James Monk, who was the attorney general of Lower Canada, and chief justice to the court of the Queen's Bench from 1804 to 1824. This area in particular became associated with Monk due to the estate he built in 1804 known as Monklands. This estate would later become the Governor General's residence, and was later on sold to the Congregation de Notre-Dame who would use the building for the Villa Maria private Catholic girls school.[1]

Monkland Avenue has been a commercial artery since the 1930s seeing various highs and lows. Today the strip shows evidence of yuppification and is home to many small businesses including restaurants, cafés, bars, and unique boutiques. The Villa Maria metro station is located at the eastern end of Monkland Avenue.
