Brossard is a city in southwestern Quebec, Canada, on the southern shore of the Saint Lawrence River across from the island and city of Montreal. It is surrounded by four municipalities on the South Shore of Montreal: Saint-Lambert, Longueuil (Borough of Greenfield Park and Borough of Saint-Hubert), Carignan and La Prairie. Brossard is bordered by the Saint Lawrence River to the west and by the Saint-Jacques River to the south. "(see Geographic location section below)"

History

The city of Brossard was founded on February 14, 1958 and was known before then as « Municipalité de la Paroisse de La Prairie de la Magdeleine ». Later, the territory of Brossard was increased twice: a portion of land #121 from Greenfield Park was added on August 8, 1964. Furthermore, Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Cœur merged into Brossard on March 25, 1978 to form the current city.

In the 1970's, an attempt was made by René Désourdy to construct a cemetery in Brossard. The attempt failed due to the water table being too high in most of the city, and as of 2007 Brossard has no cemetery.

Brossard was merged into the city of Longueuil on January 1, 2002 as a result of municipal reorganization in Quebec. Opposition to this amalgamation, during the following years, was headed by Louise Brossard, Gilles Larin and Pierre Senécal [cite news

] and resulted in a municipal referendum that took place on June 20, 2004. 38.70% of the 50,539 qualified voters voted YES for demerger, [cite web

] which met the requirements (35% or more of total voting population) needed for de-amalgamation. As a result, Brossard would continue to be a borough of the city of Longueuil only until the end of 2005.

On January 1, 2006, Brossard was reconstituted as a city and Jean-Marc Pelletier was elected as the new mayor. However, Brossard still remains part of the urban agglomeration of Longueuil and thus, Brossard sits on the agglomeration council ("conseil d'agglomération") which determines certain powers of reconstituted cities.
