  • Social and community housing is developed by cooperatives, non-profit organizations and the Office municipal d’habitation de Montréal. It is subsidized by the city’s community housing program and that of the Québec government.

  • La Ville capitalise sur la planification et la transformation de secteurs stratégiques de son territoire.

  • Demographic growth, major real estate projects, infrastructure and design work have been transforming the face of Griffintown over the past several years. A major urban project managed by Montréal is designed to create a district where life is pleasant, inspired by the history of this treasured neighbourhood in the Sud-Ouest.
