Located on an island just west of the Island of Montreal, between Vaudreuil-Dorion and Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Pincourt is one of four municipalities on Île Perrot.
It is also one of the 23 municipalities that make up the regional county municipality (RCM) of Vaudreuil-Soulanges, in the Vallée du Haut-Saint-Laurent subdivision of the Montérégie region.
A Growing Town
Pincourt is the third-most populated town in the RCM of Vaudreuil-Soulanges, after Vaudreuil-Dorion and Saint-Lazare.
As a result of its marked demographic growth, the Town of Pincourt is home to a large immigrant population. Many young couples also settle in Pincourt to raise their families in a safe, quiet place.
Pincourt Has It All
Although 65% of the Town’s territory is zoned as residential, there is significant commercial activity in Pincourt. The businesses lining Cardinal-Léger Boulevard and du Traversier Boulevard make up one of Île Perrot’s two major commercial hubs.
The Town of Pincourt is also home to protected natural areas that are recognized by the Ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques.
These natural areas, which have considerable ecological value, are ecosystems with significant biodiversity like ponds, marshes and wetlands.
A Bilingual Town
The Town of Pincourt has a large English-speaking community. In addition, it has bilingual municipality status, recognized under the Charte de la langue française. In Vaudreuil-Soulanges RCM, only the municipalities of Hudson, L’Île-Cadieux and Pincourt have this status.
A Strategic Geographic Position
Near highways 20, 30 and 40, and serviced by CIT La Presqu’île and the AMT’s Vaudreuil-Hudson train, Pincourt is an attractive home for people working in Greater Montreal.
