Footnotes ...

<1>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Laval refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a city's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Laval may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Laval - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Area code (579) is an overlay for area code (450).
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Laval) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Laval. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Laval

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Laval. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.6000, Longitude: -73.7333    
<5>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
