Côte-Vertu Boulevard (French: Boulevard de la Côte-Vertu) is a boulevard in the Saint-Laurent borough in Montreal, Quebec.

Origin of the name

Similar to the naming of Côte-de-Liesse Road (French: Chemin de la Côte-de-Liesse), the name evokes a pilgrimage site in France dedicated to Notre-Dame. The Sulpicians would name various locales of the Island of Montreal in honor of the Blessed Virgin for whom they have great devotion.
