Belcourt Inc. was founded in 1954 by David and Michael Zunenshine. Over the next fifty (50) years, the Zunenshines transformed the modest resources of a small private company into a business empire spanning real estate development, construction, hotels and building materials. Today's Belcourt Properties Inc. remains under the day-to-day control of one of its original founders, Michael Zunenshine. His commitment to quality and excellence will continue to be the foundation of ongoing and future operations of the company.
Named after a small town in central France, Belcourt’s first ventures were the construction of flats and apartment buildings in the Montreal suburb of Ville St-Laurent.

The company also built schools, office buildings, industrial parks, recreation facilities and commercial centers. Two of these communities, which Belcourt pioneered, the towns of Dollard des Ormeaux and Kirkland in Montreal’s West Island, are now considered as models for other residential developers.
