The city merged on January 1, 2002 with the communities of Boucherville, Brossard, Greenfield Park, LeMoyne, Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, Saint-Hubert, and Saint-Lambert. These cities have become boroughs of the new city. Saint-Lambert and Le Moyne became one borough, and the former city of Longueuil became the borough of Vieux-Longueuil. On June 20, 2004, the boroughs of Boucherville, Saint-Lambert, Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville and Brossard voted to demerge from Longueuil and reconstitute themselves as municipalities, having obtained 10% of signatures at a registry requesting a referendum and 35% or more majority yes votes at the referendum out of the total voting population on electoral lists. Locals refer to the borough of Vieux-Longueuil as "Longueuil proper" to distinguish it from the part of the borough known as "Old Longueuil".

In 2001, the population of the components of the current city of Longueuil totalled 348,091, making it the third largest city in Quebec and 11th largest in Canada. The current city has an area of 273.52 km². Residents of Longueuil are called Longueuillois.


Most of the community's residents commute to Montreal to work. This generates major traffic problems; owing to the width of the Saint Lawrence River between the Island of Montreal and the south shore, there are only five automobile crossings (the Honoré-Mercier, Champlain, Victoria, and Jacques-Cartier bridges and the Louis-Hippolyte-Lafontaine tunnel), and they are severely congested. (See the list of bridges in Montreal.)

The city is also served by the Longueuil–Université-de-Sherbrooke metro station, connected to downtown Montreal by the yellow line of the metro. The Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) bus lines almost all terminate here, or cross over the Champlain Bridge to arrive at the Terminus Rive-Sud in downtown Montreal (under the 1000 de la Gauchetière office tower, at Bonaventure metro). The Mont-Saint-Hilaire commuter train line also serves the south shore. Until the mid-1950s, it was served by interurban streetcars operated by the Montreal and Southern Counties Railway.

There are several explanations for the origin of the city's name. According to Abbé Faillon, Charles Le Moyne (1626-1685), lord of the area starting in 1657, named it after a village which is today the seat of a canton in the district of Dieppe in his homeland of Normandy. In France, the name is spelled "Longueil" and it is rumored that it was a mistake to spell it "Longueuil".

Symbolism

The full achievement of arms, with a crest and supporters, are those of Charles Le Moyne (1626-1685), the founder of Longueuil who was ennobled in 1668 and whose son and namesake was created a baron in 1700 by Louis XIV. In 2002, Raymond Grant, a descendant of the Le Moyne family through the female line and Baron de Longueuil, expressed his concurrence with the proposal that the City of Longueuil wished to be officially granted the historical arms of Charles Le Moyne. In the depiction of the arms, the three symbols in chief (the crescent and the two stars) are coloured gold (yellow). Since the letters of nobility of 1668 have been lost, the city based its choice on a historical document of the XVIIIth century recording the blazon (written description) of the arms (Paris, B.n.F., Chérin 138, dossier 2844). Other versions of the arms show the three upper symbols as Argent (white). Louis XIV King of France and Navarre By Hyacinthe Rigaud (1701) Louis XIV (Louis-Dieudonné) (September 5, 1638–September 1, 1715) reigned as King of France and King of Navarre from May 14, 1643 until his death. ...
