Canora is a commuter rail station on the AMT's Deux-Montagnes and Mascouche lines in the west end of the Côte-des-Neiges neighbourhood of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, just east of Mount Royal. The platforms are located northwest of the west portal of the Mount Royal Tunnel.

History

The station is located at 7300, Canora Road, immediately northwest of Jean Talon Street.

The station takes its name from Canora Road, which in turn takes its name from the first operator of this line, the CAnadian NOrthern RAilway, which built the line and operated it for a short time before it was merged into Canadian National Railway.

From the opening of the Deux-Montagnes Line in 1918 until the modernization of the line, which took place between 1993 and 1995, the station was called Portal Heights because of its location at the northwest end of the Mount Royal Tunnel.

Today the station is valued by the residents of not only the town of Mont-Royal, but also by those of the Côte-des-Neiges borough, for its fast connection with the downtown Bonaventure station, traveling to which via the Tunnel usually takes about 5 minutes.

Under the Réseau électrique métropolitain proposal, which would convert the Deux-Montagnes line to rapid-transit operation, a connecting station would be built on the Saint-Jérôme line adjacent to Canora across Rue-Jean-Talon.
