About Peter-McGill

Where families will have a voice

In the heart of Montreal, the Peter-McGill neighbourhood is attracting young families, particularly families made up of new immigrants. Proximity to jobs, shops and Mount Royal and ease of travel via public transit are some of its many benefits. However, families don’t stay because the area lacks infrastructure. For example, it lacks a local school, community centre, green space, and affordable family housing. The neighbourhood intends to increase the involvement of families, youth and seniors to ensure their voices are heard as the neighbourhood develops.
