Pierrefonds-Roxboro is a borough of the city of Montreal. It is composed of the former municipalities of Pierrefonds and Roxboro, spanning the northern part of the West Island. Besides its land borders with the borough of L'Île-Bizard–Sainte-Geneviève, as well as the boroughs of Saint-Laurent and Ahuntsic-Cartierville to the east, it borders the municipalities of Senneville, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Kirkland, and Dollard-des Ormeaux. Although now merged with the former city of Roxboro, the old Ville de Pierrefonds logo from 1999 is still in use for Pierrefonds-Roxboro, despite now being part of the city of Montreal.

The borough has an area of 38.90 km² and a population of 60,138.

As of the November 1, 2009 Montreal municipal election, the current borough council consists of the following councillors:

Residents in the area of the former city of Roxboro still prize the community for its excellent services, centered on Rue Centre-Commercial with its ethnic shops and restaurants nearby, as well as the quiet, relaxed lifestyle and an easy train commute (26 minutes to downtown Montreal) from Roxboro-Pierrefonds station.

The former town has one nature park (Ile Roxboro), two elementary schools (Lalande, French; Charles-Perrault, French; and Socrates, Greek) as well as a small library (William G. Boll). The former headquarters of the Roxboro Volunteer Fire Brigade is now Station 58 of the Service de sécurité incendie de Montréal and houses a single engine company. The adjacent former Roxboro City Hall houses the Fire Prevention officers for Fire Division 11, and also serves as a borough point of service for the Roxboro area.


The borough is served by the Sunnybrooke and Roxboro-Pierrefonds stations on the Deux-Montagnes commuter train line. Major thoroughfares include the Boulevards Saint Charles, Saint John's, des Sources, Gouin, and Pierrefonds.
