Côte Saint-Luc is a mostly residential city on the Island of Montreal. The English version of this toponym is "Saint Luke's Slope." Côte Saint-Luc was forced to merge with the city of Montreal on January 1, 2002, but was given the opportunity to demerge from the city in 2004. During the four years that it was merged with the city of Montreal, some services decreased, such as fire inspections. It was merged with its neighboring suburbs of Hampstead and Montreal West to form the borough of Côte-Saint-Luc—Hampstead—Montréal-Ouest. In a referendum held on June 20, 2004 more than 87 percent of Côte Saint-Luc residents voted to demerge and Côte Saint-Luc was re-established as a separate city on January 1, 2006.
