Financial support of close to $3 million
This pedestrianization will be jointly funded by the city (up to a maximum of $400,000 per project), the boroughs, SDC’s (local development corporations) and trade associations. These actions were envisioned in the 2021 economic recovery plan entitled “Agir maintenant pour préparer la relance”.
Promoting walking as a means of travel
By placing pedestrians high on the priority list, Montreal hopes to promote walking as a preferred means of travel and provide the population with a safe, user-friendly environment, conducive to reappropriating public spaces. Pedestrianization makes commercial arteries more attractive and promotes greening and quality of life.
