In June 2005, Ville de Montréal adopted Agenda 21 for Culture. In 2011, the City responded favourably to the call by the World Secretariat of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) to promote culture as one of the four pillars of sustainable development, along with social development, the economy and the environment.
