Montréal is big. Over the years, its development has varied depending on the borough, and even the neighbourhood, and territorial inequalities have resulted. Projet Montréal has begun a major catch-up project aimed at restoring territorial equality and will intensify the work over the next few years. It is important to offer a quality of life and equal services to all Montrealers, regardless of the neighbourhood in which they live. A Projet Montréal administration will mobilize its institutional, economic and community partners to fight chronic poverty, renovate unsanitary housing, improve community facilities and improve local services. Measures should also be put in place to improve the skills of workers and promote employment for residents of less well-off neighbourhoods in Montréal.
a. Make equal opportunities for all Montrealers a guiding principle in the prioritization of services, infrastructure and the creation of green spaces;
b. With the objective of inter-borough equity, take into account the deficit in sports, cultural and community facilities, as well as in green spaces, in the prioritization of infrastructure investments, particularly in the northeast of Montréal and in neighbourhoods where investments have been scarce in recent decades;
c. Provide the integrated urban revitalization (RUI) program with a ten-year dedicated investment budget in the ten-year capital works program, in order to allow local partners to prioritize public facilities and development;
d. Provide free wi-fi service in public places.
