Candiac History

Before European settlement, the area around Candiac was inhabited by Indigenous peoples, including the Mohawk and Algonquin who traded and travelled along the St Lawrence.

The French explorers and settlers arrived in the 1600s. The land in the area became part of various seigneuries, including the Seigneurie de La Prairie. Those settling there were primarily farmers.

After the British conquest of New France in 1760, the region came under British control. The seigneurial system gradually gave way to British land policies. The development of transportation infrastructure including roads and canals was important to the region’s economic growth.

Over the 1800s, the area retained its agricultural character.

The mid-1900s saw significant changes in the Candiac area with expansion of transportation networks, including highways and bridges that facilitated commuting to and from Montreal. This led to suburbanization, with Candiac evolving from its rural roots into a residential suburb.

The city’s development has been carefully planned to include residential neighborhoods, commercial areas, and green spaces. Candiac became an attractive location for families seeking a suburban lifestyle while maintaining proximity to Montreal.
