Origin of the name Montmorency
The name Montmorency was chosen because of the station’s proximity to Collège Montmorency, a well-known institution among Laval residents. In turn, the cegep’s name refers to François-Xavier de Montmorency-Laval de Montigny (Montigny, France, April 30, 1623 – Québec, New France, May 6, 1708), first bishop of Québec and former seigneur of Île Jésus. Ordained as a priest in 1647 following several years of studies among the Jesuits, Montmorency-Laval dedicated himself to charitable work in France until his appointment as vicar apostolic for New France in 1658. After his arrival in Québec on June 16, 1659, he took part in restructuring authority in the colony, namely through the establishment of the Sovereign Council in 1663. That same year, he founded the Séminaire de Québec, to train catholic priests locally. In 1674, the diocese of Québec is formally established and Monseigneur François de Laval becomes its first bishop; he remained in office until he resigned in 1688 for health reasons. On April 24, 1675, he acquired the Île Jésus seigneurie, or fiefdom, from François Berthelot, Royal Finance Council, in exchange for Île d’Orléans. As the development of his seigneurie was not a priority for him, Montmorency-Laval vested the estate to the Séminaire de Québec on April 12, 1680. Of course, the name Ville de Laval was inspired by this historical figure.
