Discover St-Sauveur


Saint-Sauveur (French pronunciation: [sɛ̃ sovœʁ]) is a town and municipality within the Les Pays-d'en-Haut Regional County Municipality, Quebec, Canada. It is in the administrative region of Laurentides in the Laurentian mountains, located about 60 kilometres north of Montreal.

St-Sauveur is well known for its local ski areas, the biggest of which is Mont Saint-Sauveur. The ski areas market themselves jointly under the name of "Valley of Saint-Sauveur". Its proximity to Montreal, as well as its snow-making capability, night-time skiing, and après-ski establishments make St-Sauveur a popular destination for skiers.

The town was the childhood home—from about 1946 to 1960—of Canadian musicians Kate and Anna McGarrigle.

On September 11, 2002 the city was created from the merger of the village of Saint-Sauveur-des-Monts and the parish municipality of Saint-Sauveur.[4] The current director general is Jean Beaulieu. The city clerk is Normand Patrice.
