About Pointe-aux-Trembles–Montréal-Est

REVITALIZING UNDERPRIVILEGED AREAS

Located at the east end of the Island of Montreal, Pointe-aux-Trembles covers a vast territory that is strewn with large and partially inactive industrial zones. Regional development and mobility are major challenges for its 50,000 or so inhabitants.

Pockets of isolation have produced disadvantaged areas where access to local services and food is difficult, getting around is unsafe, and isolation is very real. These facts are even more pronounced in neighbouring Montréal-Est, where 50% of families are headed by single parents.

By creating a stronger community structure, Pointe-aux-Trembles/Montréal-Est aims to revitalize these vulnerable environments so that everyone can enjoy living in their community and help improve its quality of life.
