Pointe-aux-Trembles (electoral district)

Pointe-aux-Trembles is a provincial electoral district in the Montreal region of Quebec, Canada that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. The district is located at the east point of the Island of Montreal and comprises the city of Montréal-Est and the neighbourhood of Pointe-aux-Trembles in the borough of Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles borough of Montreal.

It was created for the 1989 election from parts of Anjou, Bourget and LaFontaine electoral districts.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, its territory was unchanged.

In the 1995 Quebec referendum it voted 63% for Quebec to separate (current boundaries).


Pointe-aux-Trembles was a municipality, founded in 1674, that was annexed by Montreal, Quebec, Canada, in 1982. This was the last city to be merged into Montreal until the 2002 municipal reorganization. On January 1, 2002 this neighbourhood at the far east end of the Island of Montreal became part of the borough of Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles–Montréal-Est. On January 1, 2006 Montreal East demerged, and the borough became Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles.

One can find a windmill, at the corner of Notre-Dame Street and Third Avenue, which was built in 1719. Its three storeys make it the tallest windmill in Québec that still stands. In 1650 the Grou family of Rouen France established a land holding here.
