DescriptionThis urban riding is located in the northeast of Montreal and includes the former city of St-Léonard as well as part of the city of Montreal. The riding runs from the border of the former cities of St-Léonard and Anjou in the northeast to Papineau Avenue, Jarry Street East and 19th Avenue in the southwest, between the CN Rail line and Bélanger Street.

The economy is highly dependent on manufacturing. Less than 80 per cent of the people in this riding graduated from Grade 9 – one of the lowest levels in Canada. The average family income is $47,994 and unemployment is 11 per cent.

This riding has the second largest Italian population in Canada. More than 28 per cent list Italian as their ethnic origin. According to the 2001 census, 38 per cent have French as a mother tongue and 52 per cent have other than French or English. Rentals far outnumber homeowners, 67 per cent to 33 per cent.

St-Léonard-Anjou riding was created in 1976 from 63 per cent of St-Michel and 36 per cent of Mercier. St-Léonard was created in 1986 from 65 per cent of St-Léonard-Anjou and 18 per cent of Gamelin. In 1996, 83 per cent of St-Léonard was combined with 39 per cent of Papineau-St-Michel and renamed St-Léonard-St-Michel. In 2004, a small area from Bourassa was added, but the riding's population did not increase.

Population: 102,302
