Dollard-Des-Ormeaux, Dollard-Des Ormeaux, Quebec Real Estate and Homes for Sale

Dollard-des-Ormeaux (often referred to as D.D.O. or simply Dollard) is a predominantly English-speaking town on the Island of Montreal in southwestern Quebec, Canada. The town was named after French martyr Adam Dollard des Ormeaux.The town was merged with the city of Montreal for several years, but its residents elected to reinstate the city as its own separate entity in 2006.In 2001, the official Commission de toponymie du Québec ruled that the correct way to write the city's name was Dollard-Des Ormeaux (one hyphen, one space, all title caps). However, this was not widely accepted and is rarely used in practice. In particular, as of 2010, the city's own website does not use this way of writing the city's name.In 1714, the territory that would later become Dollard-des-Ormeaux was part of the Parish of St-Joachim de Pointe-Claire. It became part of the Parish of Ste-Geneviève when it detached from Pointe-Claire in 1845.On July 29, 1924, Dollard-des-Ormeaux detached from the Parish of Ste-Geneviève and became its own municipality after the Parish's decision to impose a tax for road improvements on Gouin Boulevard. Dollard-des-Ormeaux became its own entity, and its first mayor Hormidas Meloche was elected.
