The Sainte-Marie neighbourhood is located on the eastern end of Downtown Montreal in the borough of Ville-Marie. The Jacques-Cartier Bridge is located in this neighbourhood.

History

Prior to the construction of the Maison Radio-Canada, the area was home to a working-class neighborhood popularly known as Faubourg à m'lasse, demolished in the 1960s.[1]

The neighbourhood forms a Montreal City Council district called Sainte-Marie and is part of the provincial riding of Sainte-Marie–Saint-Jacques and the federal ridings of Laurier—Sainte-Marie and Hochelaga.

The Sainte-Marie rapids are in the St. Lawrence River between the neighbourhood of Sainte-Marie and St. Helen's Island.

Transport

The area is served by two Montreal Metro stations, Frontenac and Papineau.
