Ile Notre Dame

 

Île Notre-Dame is an artificial island built from earth excavated for the Montreal metro in 1965. It was created for Expo 67 to celebrate Canada's centennial. The island is part of the city of Montreal and forms part of the Hochelaga Archipelago. It is located in the middle of the Saint Lawrence River, immediately south of Île Sainte-Hélène and north of the Saint Lawrence Seaway. Together with Saint Helen's Island, it makes up the Parc Jean-Drapeau, which is one of the biggest in Montreal.
