Your opinion matters
In May 2021, we launched the first phase of our extensive information and consultation process to improve the REM de l'Est project to its best possible version. This page gives you access to all the information on the project, as well as the recordings of the information sessions and webinars organized.
A complete report on the consultations will be published shortly in order to draw up a portrait of the comments and recommendations obtained during this first phase of exchanges with the population.
Browse through features that allow you to express your opinion on the project in a 100% digital way: add your comments and recommendations on an interactive map, propose your ideas to improve the project and vote on various subjects concerning the project. A quick and accessible way to share your opinions on the key elements of the REM de l'Est.
In order to provide a forum for in-depth discussion, we launched a series of webinars to explore the key themes of the project while addressing related concerns. Experts in transportation and mobility took the time to explain and answer questions relating to the subject at hand.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
Questions from citizens
Watch virtual presentations of the REM de l'Est where experts from CDPQ Infra team and representatives from City of Montreal, Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) and the Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain (ARTM) answered questions from the public.
We organized several discussion groups by sector so that citizens could exchange ideas about their territory and the REM de l'Est project. These virtual events allowed for further reflection. The recommendations that emerge will be reported and taken into account as part of the upcoming detailed planning of the REM de l'Est.

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.
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.

Will there be other consultation opportunities?
Our consultation and project enhancement process is ongoing.

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.
