Montréal’s island character has been ignored for too long. The time has come to reconnect the city to the Saint Lawrence, giving the public privileged access to this great river and creating a majestic entrance to the city. The revitalization of Le Havre de Montréal, between the Samuel De Champlain and Jacques Cartier Bridges, will make it possible to reach these goals, in addition to creating an environment on a human scale where industries, homes, offices and green spaces can coexist better. This major project will be carried out in collaboration with Parks Canada to ensure continuity with the Lachine Canal, another jewel of Montréal.

Implement a common vision and an overall plan for the redevelopment of the waterfront and vacant lots between the Samuel de Champlain and Jacques Cartier Bridges, in collaboration with public organizations such as the Canada Lands Company and The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated;
