Complete living environments
where everyone can live, work, and play
A full living environment must ensure proximity to shops and daily services, must be accessible by sustainable modes of transport, and offer quality public spaces. Montréal and its neighbourhoods must be inclusive living environments where everyone, regardless of their means, age, or origin, can live, work, and play.
Make accessible quality public spaces and abundant green spaces, a variety of services, and an environment rich in economic, social, recreational and cultural activities to all.
