Mitigating urban heat islands
The borough of Verdun, in partnership with Nature-Action Québec and the Government of Québec, has pledged to reduce urban heat islands in a particularly hot zone within its limits, the Wellington-de-l’Église neighbourhood and the sector south of this neighbourhood.
The Verdun fait sa fraîche! project has already resulted in increased vegetation cover, which will help reduce urban heat island effects in this area in years to come.
