While it existed, it was the most populous regional county municipality in Quebec.
It ceased to exist by January 1, 2002, in the midst of the early 2000s municipal reorganization in Quebec. Although the city of Laval itself was unaffected, legislation gave newly constituted cities arising from that municipal reorganization the powers of a regional county municipality for the purpose of certain laws, and Laval got similar powers. Today, Laval is not part of any regional county municipality; for statistical and census purposes, it is considered a territory equivalent to a regional county municipality.
