The school was established in 1950 as a religious owned school called Externat classique de Longueuil. In 1967, several institutions were merged and became public ones, when the Quebec system of public colleges was created, including the Cégep Édouard-Montpetit, named after the Quebec lawyer and academic, Édouard Montpetit
The Cégep Édouard-Montpetit's 16 athletic teams are known as the Lynx.
The CEGEP offers two types of programs: pre-university and technical. The pre-university programs, which take two years to complete, cover the subject matter which roughly corresponds to the additional year of high school given elsewhere in Canada in preparation for a chosen field in university. The technical programs, which take three years to complete, applies to students who wish to pursue a skill trade. In addition, Continuing Education for adults and services to businesses are provided.
The CEGEP is ranked among the top 10 in research and is located in an impoverished neighborhood of Longueuil.
