Part of the city’s budget as well as certain borough budgets has been earmarked for resident projects. Do you have ideas for improving the quality of life in your city or neighbourhood? Would you like to vote for your favourite project? Find out what you need to know.
Calls for resident projects let you suggest ideas to improve your living environment. You decide how part of your borough or Montréal’s budget will be used!
Whether your idea is large or small, whether it affects the entire city or your neighbourhood, a few options are available to you.
A participatory budget is a democratic process through which the public makes project proposals to the city and then chooses them.
Registration and eligibility conditions, as well as themes of selected projects, vary from one participatory project to another.
Would you like to make a proposal for a large project that affects the whole city? Learn more about Montréal’s participatory budget.
Does your idea involve a borough? There are participatory budgets in Ahuntsic-Cartierville, Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve and Le Plateau-Mont-Royal.
Participatory resident projects
Groups of neighbours can get funding and guidance to improve or enhance their neighbourhood through participatory resident projects. Selected projects are carried out by the groups of residents themselves.
Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie is the only borough to offer this program.
