Inform and consult citizens and stakeholders on the REM de l'Est project by offering them multiple ways to participate and give their opinions.
Improve and optimize the REM de l'Est project through our ongoing discussions with stakeholders, a public consultations process and and ongoing technical studies.
Since the project was announced in December 2020, we have been meeting on a weekly basis with community stakeholders to discuss the REM de l'Est. We are convinced that contributions from the public, combined with those from experts and interest groups, will only enhance the project, making it the best it can possibly be. This process, which has been underway since the project was publicly announced, includes several components that allow us to take into consideration a multitude of factors and interests, thereby ensuring we maintain a global vision of the project.
I can’t attend the meetings on the proposed dates. What are my options?
From our website, you will be able to access videos of the information sessions, as we will be recording them and making the video content available on the site. In addition, our consultation platform is a useful tool that allows you to send your comments, in various forms, at any time.
I don’t live in any of the neighbourhoods targeted by the public meetings. Can I still attend?
The meetings are open to everyone. However, the topics will be geared toward the neighbourhoods involved. The information sessions will provide general information about the project and give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. In addition, our consultation platform is a useful tool that allows you to send your comments, in various forms, at any time.
What impact will these meetings have on the project?
From a tangible standpoint, this approach aims to promote understanding of the REM de l’Est project and foster participation in its enhancement. Our firm intention is to make the REM de l’Est an exemplary collective project. We will achieve this by working together with the relevant authorities, members of civil society and the public.
The recommendations and opinions submitted as part of the information and consultation process will be documented in detail and CDPQ Infra is committed to responding to them, taking into account the technical feasibility, economic viability, social acceptability and environmental impact of the proposed ideas.
Will the consultations be accessible to people with limitations?
We are putting in place several measures to make our information and consultation process more accessible. Please contact us at 514-847-2833 or [email protected] for more details.
Where can I consult project documentation?
You can consult the Documentations section where all documents are deposited. We regularly update the content when new documentation is available.
I have a question or comment about the project, but I’m unable to attend the meetings. How can I voice my opinion?
You can share your opinion on our online consultation platform, available at all times, by email at [email protected] or by phone at 514 847-2833.
Will there be other consultation opportunities?
Our consultation and project enhancement process is ongoing. Several mechanisms have been put in place, such as the multidisciplinary committee of experts on urban and architectural integration, meetings with stakeholders, information and consultation sessions and the online consultation platform, which is available at all times until the end of the summer. Furthermore, the Bureau d’audiences publiques en environnement environmental assessment process (BAPE), to which we are subject, also gives the public the opportunity to provide feedback.
Can we present written briefs as part of the public information and consultation process?
Yes, you can send your written briefs to [email protected]. The documents will be made available on our website as part of the reporting process.
