The station was inaugurated on September 3, 1978, as part of the extension of the Green Line westward to Angrignon.

Art and architecture

Origin of the name

This station is named for rue Jolicoeur. Father Jean-Moïse Jolicoeur founded the parish of Notre-Dame-du-Perpétuel-Secours in 1906; the street was renamed in his honour in 1914.
