Saint-Jérôme is a suburban city on the Rivière du Nord, some 45 kilometres (28 miles) northwest of Montreal. The Autoroute des Laurentides connects the town to the Laurentian Mountains and their resorts. Saint Jerome, a church father best known for translating the Bible from Greek and Hebrew into Latin, is the town’s name. The Vulgate is the name given to his translation. With its diverse natural attractions and high quality of life, it’s no surprise that the area has had the province’s largest population boom since 1991.

The city’s beauty comes from its cultural and historical attractions. The Cathedral of St-Jérôme, which was completed in 1900 and includes a 3025-pipe organ, is one of the most impressive structures in the city. The Laurentian Museum of Contemporary Art, the largest museum north of Montreal, is also worth a visit.

A market near the Place de la Gare in the city centre serves as a meeting point for vegetable producers from all over the area. Fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as plants, flowers, herbs, maple products, bread and pastries, are available from April to the end of November in this lively and pleasant place.

The present-day city of Saint-Jérôme was granted as the seignory of Augmentation des Mille-Iles by the marquis de la Jonquière, governor of New France, in 1752. The Dumont and Lefebvre de Bellefeuille families, who lived in Saint-Eustache, 25 kilometres (16 miles) to the south, owned the seignory from the 1760s to the 1840s. The farmland was provided to colonists mostly from the area north of Montreal by the Dumont and Lefebvre. Dumontville was the name given to the new town at the time.

From 1868 until his death in 1891, François-Xavier-Antoine Labelle, a Roman Catholic priest and the great “coloniser” (promoter of settlement) of the north of Montreal, was in charge of the pastoral administration of Saint-Jérôme. He had a railway constructed connecting Saint-Jérôme and Montreal eight years after his arrival.

In 2002, the municipalities of Bellefeuille (2006 census population 15,866), Saint-Antoine (2001 population 11,488), and Lafontaine merged to form Saint-Jérôme (2001 population 9,477). The Terrebonne judicial district is headquartered in Saint-Jérôme.
