Rich in history
The second most populous district in Laval, Fabreville is bordered by the Mille-Îles River to the northwest, Sainte-Rose to the northeast, Chomedey to the southeast, Sainte-Dorothée to the south and Laval-Ouest to the southwest.
First known by the name of the municipality at the western part of the parish of Sainte-Rose, this territory adopted the “Town of Fabreville” name in 1957. Three years later, it lost part of the town of Sainte-Rose. In 1965, came the merger. The old city merged with 13 municipalities to form the city of Laval.
In continuous development, Fabreville mainly comprises single-family homes, some semi-detached, townhouses and, increasingly, residential units. Interestingly, several residential streets in the neighbourhood have been given first names.
Many families choose this neighbourhood because of its tranquility and unique living environment.
