The City of L’Île-Perrot (10,516 inhabitants in 2010; 486 ha) is one of the
four municipalities located on Perrot Island, west of Montréal.
Perrot Island was split in 1947 into Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot (south) and L'Île-Perrot-Nord (north). In 1949, the Village of Pincourt was established in the westernmost part of the island, while the Municipality of Terrasse-Vaudreuil was established in 1954 in the northernmost part of the island. In 1955, L'Île-Perrot-Nord was incorporated as the City of L'Île-Perrot.
