New Residents

Word from the Mayor

On behalf of the City Council, it is a pleasure for me to welcome you to Vaudreuil-Dorion. Since you chose to settle here, it is very likely that our City was already meeting with some of your requirements, for example our proximity to the island of Montreal, a low tax rate, a good quality of life for your family, being near the water, parks and green spaces galore, the many stores and services ... In short, an attractive living environment with something for everyone.

The purpose of this web page is to gather in one place all the answers to the questions new residents may ask themselves when arriving in a new city, including which days collections are made, city regulations, the activities that are offered, and the operating hours for the different municipal services, to name a few. Please feel welcome to contact any of our municipal departments or your City Councillor if you have any further questions.

I hope you will feel at home in Vaudreuil-Dorion. We look forward to making your acquaintance at one of our many events.
