Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery is the largest cemetery in Canada and the third-largest in North America. The cemetery’s wooded areas contain over 5,300 trees. Of these, half are ornamental varieties placed along the roadways or in pockets of greenery. The large forest on Mount Royal harbours a variety of animal species. Grey squirrels, eastern (or “Swiss”) chipmunks, groundhogs, raccoons and striped skunks are the most common mammals. Cottontail rabbits and red foxes are often seen as well, contributing to the mountain’s rustic character…a special treat in a major urban area. Many bird species also visit this unique environment.
Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery is a Catholic cemetery that provides proper burial of the dead, including all associated products and services.
