According to the statement of heritage interest (in French) issued in October 2012 by the Division de l’expertise en patrimoine et de la toponymie of the City of Montréal, “the heritage interest of the site of the Saint-Eusèbe-de-Verceil church is based primarily on its urban landscape value due to the strong presence of the church, its visibility and monumentality, the site’s contribution to the institutional core and its positive contribution to the sector.
The site also has artistic value due to the quality of the monumental architectural composition of the church, its important ornamentation and its materials, the quality of its interior spaces and the architectural quality of the presbytery.
The site has symbolic and social value because of the community’s attachment to it and the memories attached to this place, the spiritual significance associated with the church and the spirit of the place, and the importance of the church at the heart of the religious and social activity of the district. Finally, its heritage interest is also based on its historical value since it is closely associated with the history of the district.”
However, the church has been abandoned for many years; it is threatened by vandalism and its structure is deteriorating quickly, which could lead to demolition. In 2019, a major fire, which required dozens of firefighters, destroyed the church floor and severely damaged the artwork inside.
