Geography
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​.
The borough has an area of 27.1 km² (10½ sq. mi.) and a population of 69,297.
Pierrefonds has the largest nature park in the City of Montreal, the Cap-Saint-Jacques Nature Park. It is also home to several English elementary schools (St. Anthony School, St. Charles School, Greendale, Terry Fox School, Kingsdale Academy) as well as the public English high school, Pierrefonds Community High School. There are also three French private schools, Collège Charlemagne, Collège Beaubois and École Charles-Perrault.
Roxboro has two nature parks known as Roxboro Island[8] and Roxboro Woods,[9] three elementary schools (Lalande, French; Charles A. Kirkland, English; and Socrates, Greek) as well as a small library and a large library (1997).[10] (William G. Boll). It also had a Federal Canada Post office 1996-12-13.[11] 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 Town Hall houses the Fire Prevention officers for Fire Division 11, and also serves as a borough point of service for the Roxboro area.
