The Bureau du Mont-Royal was launched in 2004, as part of the creation of the Mount Royal Heritage Site, to protect and enhance Mont-Royal. The mountain greatly contributes to the natural and heritage wealth of Montréal and Québec.
Above all, the Bureau ensures the development, accessibility and promotion of Mont-Royal as a heritage site
Roles and responsibilities
- Monitor the implementation of the Mount Royal Protection and Enhancement Plan (adopted in 2009)
- Advise Montréal on decision-making processes and management plans for the Mount Royal Heritage Site (MRHS)
- Coordinate relations with all municipal services, the four boroughs included in the MRHS and Westmount, and serve as a link with the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications
- Coordinate activities related to the MRHS under the cultural development agreement between the city and the government of Québec
- Manage the funds dedicated to protecting and developing Mont-Royal.
The Bureau du Mont-Royal is also in charge of expanding knowledge of Mont-Royal. The Bureau has launched several studies that are available on the official Mont-Royal website. This site was developed in collaboration with the Ministère de la culture et des communications du Québec, as part of the cultural development agreement between the city and the government of Québec.
Table de concertation du Mont-Royal
The Bureau du Mont-Royal is supported and advised by the Table de concertation du Mont-Royal, launched in 2004.
The Table brings together several stakeholders who care about the future of Mont-Royal, including representatives from institutions, associations, governments and municipalities. The members of the Table, led by a chair, meet several times a year. Their goal is to reach a consensus on accessibility, protection and enhancement of the territory and to carry out actions to ensure the harmonious management and development of Mont-Royal.
The Table also monitors the Mount Royal Protection and Enhancement Plan and works to create the conditions for its success.
The Table collaborates with three working groups to address the following issues and themes:
- Management, accessibility and security at Mont-Royal
- Enhancing the heritage of Mont-Royal
- Carrying out development projects on public property
It can also set up ad hoc working groups as needed.
