Became a minor basilica in 1991 The current Sainte-Cécile Basilica-Cathedral was built from 1933 to 1935 according to plans drawn up by architects Henri Labelle, Eugène Perron, Jean-Marie Lafleur and Louis-Napoléon Audet in 1933, in the neo-Gothic style. The contractors in charge of the project were Deschamps and Bélanger. The structure is made of concrete and the exterior is made of granite from Saint-Samuel and Sainte-Cécile de Witton.

The granite comes from scraps from the Île d'Orléans bridge. The cut stone inside comes from Saint-Marc-des-Carrières and was prepared in Côte-des-Neiges. The church has 1500 seats.

The bells are at a height of more than 35 meters and, higher still, the rooster resting on the point of the bell tower is 70 meters above the ground.
