About Pointe-aux-Trembles

Where revitalization is a big concern

Pointe-aux-Trembles is located at the east end of Montreal between Autoroute 40 and the St. Lawrence River. Although the train makes it easy to get to downtown, it’s still a major challenge to get around inside the neighbourhood via public transit. Despite a small number of low-income people in the territory, poverty and its associated realities are very present in some areas and for many families made vulnerable from recent job losses. The neighbourhood has taken action to reach out to the populations in these sectors. It intends to continue revitalizing these communities and to build bridges with Montréal-Est, the neighbouring area that is also home to a vulnerable population.

Timeline

The neighbourhood's target project: “Breaking Down Barriers”

The goal of this project is to build bridges with neighbouring Montréal-Est, which is also home to a vulnerable population. Although it has great needs, this population currently has access to few services and activities. The goal will be to break down barriers between these neighbourhoods to reach more children and families.
