Bromont

Over the past 40 years, the dynamic nature of this town has significantly contributed to the rapid expansion of its industrial, sports, cultural, and tourism sectors.


Bromont

Bromont has an international reputation and welcomes visitors, sports enthusiasts and athletes at its first-class facilities year round. The modern history of Bromont started at the end of the 18th century, with the arrival of the Loyalists.

Later enhanced by Francophone and Irish settlers, this community flourished in harmony. The year 1964 marks the founding of the town of Bromont. At the time, the founding family, the Désourdys, planned the town’s development along two major axes: a tourism sector and a high-technology industrial sector.

In addition to the SkiBromont.com ski centre, the largest lit skiing facility in North America that converts into a water park and mountain bike trail site during the summer, Bromont residents are fortunate to have their own airport, excellent lodgings, renowned health centres, camping, several excellent golf courses, a bike path that joins the Route Verte, an Olympic velodrome, equestrian centres including an Olympic equestrian park, and hiking and equestrian trails.
