125th anniversary

Senneville, together with Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and Baie d’Urfe, were originally part of the area known as Bout-de-l’Ile. 2020 will mark the 125th anniversary of Senneville as a separate village.

A volunteer committee has been formed to help the Administration organize events for this milestone.


We want to make sure that everyone, new, former and long-time residents, come together to celebrate Senneville. We would ask you to forward the information to those who have left the Village but might like to return for these activities. 


We would like to collect photographs and historical artifacts of life in Senneville from the beginning years to the modern day so that we can organize a public exhibition in September 2020. If you have something relevant to share, please contact Liz Morgan lesabot@outlook.com or Vicky Weil vweil2@bell.net


Our celebrations — both the Official Senneville and the Citizen Initiative events — will begin in January 2020 and will continue throughout the year with exhibitions, dinners, lectures, sporting events and a gala.

Please contact any member of the committee to offer help or suggestions and be prepared to participate in a great celebration.

Finally he joined the faculty of John Abbott College in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue where he taught chemistry for 35 years.

Senneville Golf Links and the Great Estates of the late 19th Century

While researching the material for his book, ​Golfing in the Garden: A History of Senneville Links and Braeside Golf Club​, (arguably the oldest golf course in Canada still in the same place) he became very impressed by the impact of just a few families on the development of the social life on the western tip of the Island of Montreal. 

He will focus on the part played by the Abbott, Morgan, Angus, Forget and Clouston families and the society they created.

Copies of his book, ​Golfing in the Garden: A History of Senneville Links and Braeside Golf Club,​ will be available for ​$30​.
