Montrealers themselves must be at the heart of the innovative projects that are shaping the city. Projet Montréal will continue to involve the population through information sessions, public consultations and co-creation workshops, all in the aim of ensuring that future projects are appropriate and socially acceptable. Consulting and informing ahead of projects. Testing ideas. Evaluating the results and making corrections if necessary. Then implementing projects, measuring their impact and following up. This is how Projet Montréal intends to make important changes.
a. Adopt a policy of participation and public engagement to provide structure and encourage best practices in all of the city’s administrative bodies and units;
b. Produce an annual report on the various consultations held within the city and the responses to the resulting recommendations;
c. Update the Montréal Charter of Rights and Responsibilities to embrace a culture of innovation by initiating pilot projects or experiments in partnership with organizations.
d. Introduce postal voting for all upcoming municipal elections and improve the methods for registering on the voters’ list to ensure greater public participation.
