Long Description:
Ile Jesus is an island lying to the North of Montreal. It is 34km in length and 10km at its widest point and like Montreal, is part of the Hochelaga archipelago. On the 15th of January 1636, the island was granted to the Jesuits (la compagnie de Jesus) by the Company of New France . Over the centuries, after the island was sold by the missionaries, the population grew and in 1965 the thirteen municipalities on the island merged to form one City of Laval which now occupies Ile Jesus. The coordinates are for the Clinique Veterinaire de L'lle Jesus Inc. but the name of the island is also identifiable at Location Ile-Jesus Rentals Inc. and ACEF de L'Ile Jésus. It is a large island, but during your visit, it would be nice if you could find photographic evidence of the name "ile Jesus".
Bible verse: Matthew 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
