L'Amoreaux is named after the original settler of the region Josue L'Amoreaux who arrived in 1816. His name can still be seen in a number of community centres and parks in the region.
L'Amoreaux is a collection of subdivisions with winding, tree-lined streets.
Today, the neighbourhood shows little French flavour, although it is quite diverse. Today, there is a mix of ethnicities, with Chinese being the most predominant.
