The evolution of the 1960s brought the first local commercial venture, with the opening of Cooper's Garage (the present Baie-D’Urfé Public Works building). The Shopping Centre opened in 1967, was destroyed by fire in 1980, and then rebuilt and re-opened a year later.
The Industrial Park was established in the 1960s. The first industry opened in 1970 but development was slow until the mid-eighties. It is currently comprised of over 70 businesses.
In 1961, Mr. Tommy Lee, Mayor of the time, introduced the Town crest, which is an exact replica of the coat of arms of the Abbé d'Urfé. Ceremonies that year celebrating the 275th Anniversary of the opening of the Parish of St-Louis register and the 50th Anniversary of incorporation included the unveiling of the memorial Cairn at the Coop area.
In 1987, the Famille Lalonde d'Amérique organized a big reunion and unveiled a monument in Bertold Park to honour their first Canadian ancestor, first settler Jean de la Londe.
