West Island

considered to consist of the cities of Dorval, Pointe-Claire, Kirkland (Kirkland, Quebec), Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Beaconsfield (Beaconsfield, Quebec), Baie-D'Urfé (Baie-D'Urfé, Quebec), Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue (Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec), the village of Senneville (Senneville, Quebec), and two boroughs of the city of Montreal: Pierrefonds-Roxboro and L'Île-Bizard–Sainte-Geneviève. Furthermore, given the nature of suburban demographic development in Montréal, off-island

residents are today bilingual if not multi-lingual, (given the cosmopolitan nature of this vast suburban area), anglophones (English-speaking Quebecer) still make up a relative majority of the West Island's population. Given its population, the West Island is of similar same size as Windsor, Kitchener, Longueuil, Saskatoon, Burnaby or Regina. Curiously, as late as the 1960s, the West Island was principally farmland populated by Old World French Canadians, which in turn accounts

for the significant Francophone cultural influence in what was arguably the 'most English' part of Québec. The West Island has a multicultural feel and an at times eclectic design (with modern buildings and classic Québécois country homes side by side), given the history of the area and its complex inter-related development with the City of Montreal. The region boasts large green spaces bordering rivers and lakes, bike trails, nature parks, museums, cross-country ski trails, ecological farms, golf courses

on a small scale. Due to the sparse vegetation, forestry plays only a minor role. Tourism is a major branch of business in Enontekiö, even if there are fewer visitors than in those municipalities of Lapland which have big skiing centres. Enontekiö mostly attracts nature tourists, who travel to Lapland for hiking, fishing, canooing, skiing or snowmobiling, as well as automobile tourists, such as those on their way to the North Cape (North Cape, Norway). Annually, more than 100,000 overnight

of local history, which opened in 1991, were moved to Hetta from different villages in the municipality. They are a farmhouse from Raattama from the end of the 19th century, a living room from Ylikyrö from the 1920s, a storehouse also from Ylikyrö from the 18th century, a sauna from Muotkajärvi built in 1937, and a cattle shed from Kaukonen in the neighbouring municipality of Kittilä. The nature and culture centre of Fjell-Lapland is maintained by the Finnish Forest Office (''Metsähallitus

'') and is located in Hetta, too. With its exhibitions, it shows the nature of northern Lapland and the culture of the reindeer-Sami. In Järämä, approximately 20 km north of Karesuvanto, a part of the Sturmbock emplacement from the Lapland War was restored. Since 1997, there is an annexed museum, dealing with the history of the Lapland War in Enontekiö. Regular events Since 1971, a Sami cultural event, the Mary's Days of Hetta (''Hetan Marianpäivät''), is held at the beginning of March
