Saint-Jacques street: Montreal’s Wall Street

Until the early 1970s Montréal was Canada’s premiere city, and at the end of the 19th century, Saint-Jacques Street was to Montréal what Wall Street is to New York: its financial and commercial core. The development of a new city centre “up on the hill,” however, led to a decline of Old Montréal. Today, thanks to revitalization efforts such as the World Trade Centre, the historic centre of the city has become a sought-after destination. Each year, new business choose it as their home, and the quarter welcomes millions of visitors. In 1672, François Dollier de Casson, superior of the Sulpicians, drew up a new urban map for Ville-Marie and gave names to the new streets. Saint-Jacques Street was possibly named after one of two people. First, Jean-Jacques Olier de Verneuil, one of the founders of the Société Notre-Dame, which itself played a role in the founding of Montréal. Saint- Jacques Street may also refer to Jacques Archambault, one of the city’s first inhabitants, whose property the street bisected. During the second half of the 19th century, Saint- Jacques Street lost its residential character and became the centre of Montréal’s first financial district, a true “Wall Street” of Canada. The head offices of many large financial institutions were located there, with the street soon becoming saturated. With the construction of Place Ville Marie, which opened in 1962, financial institutions slowly began to leave Old Montréal. Saint-Jacques Street has undergone a rebirth since the 1970s, thanks to the administrative sector. Today this major artery is the site of cultural and tourism activities, along with the courthouse and the City of Montréal’s administrative buildings, which bring the street to life.
