Overview- REM de l'Est
REM de l’Est
As part of its agreement with the Government of Quebec, CDPQ Infra was mandated on May 6, 2019, to propose a structuring public transit solution to meet the clear mobility needs in the East and Northeast of the Island of Montreal, while allowing for the development of major economic hubs. This is how the proposal for the REM de l’Est project was launched on December 15, 2020.
During the planning phase of the project, CDPQ Infra released an architectural proposal in collaboration with renowned Quebec and international firms and conducted detailed technical studies following the analysis of several scenarios. It also submitted a governance proposal on urban development. This proposal and all of its documentation are still available for consultation.
With the announcement made on May 2, 2022 by the Government of Quebec, establishing a new project team to respond to different transportation needs identified by the City of Montreal, the mandate given to CDPQ Infra ends.
