Origin of the nameEdit
This station (formerly named L'Assomption, a name still seen on the station's nameplates) is named for boul. de l'Assomption, so named in 1951 to commemorate Pope Pius XII's confirmation of the dogma of the Assumption of Mary in his 1950 apostolic constitution Munificentissimus Deus.
