About Ville-Émard/Côte-Saint-Paul

Where social diversity makes for a great place to live

Located in the south-west part of the island and close to downtown and the Lachine Canal, Ville-Émard–Côte-Saint-Paul is undergoing profound transformation. The reconstruction of the Turcot interchange in particular will have a considerable impact on the Côte-Saint-Paul sector. Development in the neighbourhood has attracted wealthier residents. The neighbourhood intends to meet the needs of this new population without further impoverishing people who are already in a vulnerable situation. The goal is to achieve sustainable changes around a common vision: building a friendly environment that is safe and dynamic and where residents of all ages feel they can easily live, work and get around.

Timeline

The neighbourhood's target project: “Creating a local food system”

  The goal of this project is to create better synergy among food security initiatives and projects while developing any missing components for a complete system (production / processing / distribution / education / involvement) in order to help families and isolated or vulnerable people.
