Dollard des Ormeaux is a town on the Island of Montreal in southwestern Quebec, Canada. The population of the town was 48,206 in the year 2001. The town was named after French martyr Adam Dollard des Ormeaux. Along with the other municipalities on the island, it became merged with the city of Montreal on January 1, 2002. Dollard des Ormeaux was re instated as a city on January 1, 2006. About 67 percent of the population of Dollard des Ormeaux uses English at home, 12 percent use other languages and only 21 percent use French at home. The town has a substantial and rapidly-growing Jewish community.
Dollard des Ormeaux was originally a bedroom community in the early 1960’s. One of its original main axes, Anselme Lavigne street in the Westpark district, is named for a farmer who sold his land to the Belcourt construction company. Many of the streets in the Sunnydale district, including Sunshine and Hyman, are named for members in the Zunenshine family, who owned Belcourt. 
During Canada's centennial anniversary in 1967, the town decided to create a Centennial park, featuring a man-made lake and hills. However the project ran into problems and became a local scandal and a major drain on resources. It was finally completed in the 1970s, overdue and over budget.

The main goal of the service is quality of life for the residents by active partnerships with the police and other municipal services. The service has always looked for innovative means to perform its duties effectively, such as recently deploying the first fully functional hybrid patrol vehicle in Montreal. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and pursue enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace.
