The development programs and the financial support offered, particularly in the context of the post-COVID recovery, have given a great boost to the commercial arteries, improved the customer experience and brought thousands of Montrealers back. Work will continue in a second mandate to offer ever more beautiful, more inviting, greener and more prosperous commercial arteries.
