Origin of station name

McGill College Avenue was already known by that name when handed over to the City of Montréal on February 16, 1856. Laid out almost exactly on the path leading to the entrance to McGill College, the avenue was named for the institution founded in 1821.

Originally from Scotland, James McGill (1744-1813) came to Canada, became a fur merchant and was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada. He purchased the Burnside farm in 1798, a property he later bequeathed along with money to the Royal Institution for the Advancement of Learning, established in 1801, to fund the creation of a college named after him.
