History and facts about this building
The Jean-Talon station was built at a time when Montreal was the railway center of Canada and that many companies have waged a close battle for their share of customers. It is in this context that the Canadian Pacific company erected the magnificent station Jean-Talon. After this construction, several stations became unnecessary, including the Mile-End train Station.

The building was neglected and left empty for several years before being occupied again by another transport type: Metro with the opening of Park metro Station.

Central part of the station was occupied by various stores. Now a SAQ occupies the center of the building, making it one of the most beautiful SAQ store in Quebec.

The station was again used as a train station when, to relieve congestion caused by the renovation of the Rivière des milles iles Bridge, a line from Blainville and Gare Jean-Talon was oppened. This line is now more crowded than ever, even if the bridge rehabilitation is completed.
